PREFACE 

Few words are necessary to explain the plan of this book. 
The first three generations of the Stackpoles in America are 
summed up on page 69. The different branches of the family 
tree are then shown in successive chapters. The names of all 
persons who bear the surname Stackpole are printed in small 
capitals, and the surname is added in some cases for clearness or 
by special request. Roman numerals prefixed indicate the first 
generation of the chapter ; Arabic numerals, the second ; capital 
letters, the third : small letters, the fourth ; small letters in paren- 
theses, the fifth. The usual genealogical abbreviations need no 
explanation. 

Fulness and accuracy of dates have been sought. Saving a 
few typographical errors, there is good evidence for every date 
given. The records of many towns and churches have been 
searched. Wills, deeds and public documents have yielded as- 
sistance. Hundreds of letters have contained items of informa- 
tion. Only a few persons could not be prevailed upon by the 
utmost diplomacy to answer repeated inquiries. Any reader 
who notices an error or can furnish further information is 
requested to notify the author. The first publication of a work 
of this kind is necessarily incomplete. It brings to light facts 
that otherwise would remain hidden. The author suggests the 
printing of an annual report of the Reunions together with cor- 
rections, additions, and such historical facts of interest as the 
future of the family may develop. Thus an edition in some 
future year may be more complete. 

If this book lead the youth who bear its name to a just 
amount of family pride and so become an incentive to broad 
education, earnest endeavor, sympathetic helpfulness, and noble 
living, the aim and wish of the author will be realized. 



I. 
ORIGIN 

The southwestern part of Wales has long been called "Little 
England." It was conquered soon after the invasion of William 
I. and settled by Normans and Flemings, who drove out the 
primitive Welsh. Pembrokeshire is its extreme western county. 
On its southern shore there is a columnar mass of limestone 
called the "Stack Rock," laid down on the Chart of Govern- 
ment Surveyors, near the mouth of a wide estuary or pool, some- 
times called Broadhaven. It evidently gave its name to the 
little harbor, and the place was anciently called Stack-pool. The 
name is variously spelled. A spelling older than 1300 A. D. is 
"S-t-a-k-e-p-o-1." A Welsh spelling of about the same date is 
S-t-a-c-k-p-w-1, where w is sounded like 00. In harmony with 
the genius of their respective languages the Normans would spell 
it without a k and the Saxons without a c. In process of time 
the two were combined as analogously in sack, back, etc. One 
letter is superfluous, yet modern English employs both in a large 
number of similar words. Many descendants of the family have 
always omitted the k in spelling the surname. Since the old 
Saxon name for a pool of water was pol, pronounced like pole, 
and since the fashion of Norman French was to write a silent 
e at the end of many words, it is easy to see how Stack-pool 
became Stackpole. It may be said, too, that stake and stack 
have a common origin. 

There is a tradition that GUILLAUME de MONTVALAI 
came over in the train of William the Conqueror and was 
assigned an estate at Horsham, Sussex, not far from the battle- 
field of Hastings. His son Richard was knighted by William I. 
and settled in Pembrokeshire, near Stack-pool. The latter part 
of the tradition, at least, seems to be well founded, as will soon 



lO STACKPOLE FAMILY 

be shown. Before the Conquest no surnames existed in Eng- 
land. They were just beginning to come into use in France. 
Many surnames arose from the name of the place in which a 
family lived. In a very old Roll of Knights the name is found 
"Sire Richard de Stakepol," i. e. Sir Richard of the place called 
Stackpool, making due allowance for Norman mode of spelling 
Saxon words. Such is the origin of the family name, and it 
dates back certainly to the end of the eleventh century. Very 
few surnames are as old. The historian Freeman smiles at the 
claim of some families in search of an ancient ancestry to a sur- 
name dating before the Conquest. 

A recent historian says, "The name Stackpool was at first the 
designation of the inlet near the Stack, a projecting rock at its 
mouth, and the first Norman settler, Sir Elidur, called himself 
De Stackpool. The speUing Stackpole is incorrect and mislead- 
ing." 

He says again, "On a creek, sheltered and woody, Stackpool 
Court, on the site of a castle founded by the Norman, Elidur 
de Stackpole, eleventh century, formerly belonging to the Lorts, 
now to the Earl of Cawdor."* 

The description given by Richard Fenton in 1810 is so inter- 
esting that it is here copied at length. In a footnote he adds, 
" Notwithstanding the modern spelling of the name I have taken 
the liberty to write it as above on the authority of the MS. 
referred to, and the most ancient documents I have consulted." 
His description is as follows : — 

"Stackpool Court, the elegant seat of Lord Cawdor, 
undoubtedly took its name, and so I find it noted in a MS. I have 
had access to in the Bodleian Library, from the Stack rock at 
the mouth of the pool or estuary of Broadhaven, at the head of 
which it stands. The house is situated on the western side of 
the water, on a fine eminence at the edge of a bold declivity, and 
before it yielded to the present noble edifice, had partly a castel- 
lated form, though it had been for a century before, by every 
addition and alteration it experienced, gradually losing its 
ancient and honorable baronial character, and moulding itself 
to the fashion of the times. However, there can be no doubt 

*Annals and Antiquities of Counties and County Families of Wales, 
by Thomas Nicholas. Vol. II, pp. 897, 836. London, 1875. 



ORIGIN 1 1 

of its retaining much of its castle strength and massiveness at the 
time of the civil wars, as it was fortified and garrisoned for the 
king: for in the account given by the parliamentary forces of 
the siege they say, "The walls were so strong that the ordnance 
did but little execution." It surrendered on quarter, and sixty 
soldiers completely armed were found in the house. 

The mansion now occupying the same site, of wrought lime- 
stone, was built by the grandfather of the present noble posses- 
sor who was son of Sir Alexander Campbell, of Cawdor Castle 
in Scotland, the first of the name who settled here, by marrying 
Miss Lort, the sole heiress of this great property. Though there 
have been objections to the heaviness of its architecture, it is 
a large and magnificent pile and well adapted to its site. It has 
two fronts, the principal facing the pleasure grounds and the 
grand approach ; the other looking over a fine piece of water at 
the foot of the slope it stands on to the park. You enter the 
latter from a terrace of great breadth, extending the length of 
it, and after descending a flight of steps, continued on a lower 
level the whole length of a spacious conservatory, furnished with 
a choice collection of the rarest shrubs and plants. On the 
opposite side is the park, of great compass and well stocked 
with deer. The hills skirting the lake by the house and form- 
ing its boundary are richly wooded in every direction, as are 
the pleasure-grounds and shrubbery in front, beyond which, but 
completely hid, are the gardens, including the hot-houses, on 
an immense scale. A charming piece of water admirably 
planned now fills the vale under the house, which, till this 
change of late years took place, crept an inconsiderable stream, 
checked with reeds and osiers all the way to the place where it 
felt and was lost in the tide. The dam for altering the level, 
necessary to unite the water, is happily hid under an elegant 
bridge of eight arches, connecting the grounds on the side of 
the mansion with the park. The lake is most abundantly 
stocked with aquatic wild-fowl of every sort, if wild they may be 
called that collect at a call and come in flocks to dry land to be 
fed like barn-door poultry. 

The house is distributed into a number of very noble apart- 
ments, and the library is large and well furnished. In one of 
the rooms, hung round with family pictures, there is a portrait 



12 STACKPOLE FAMILY 

whole length of Lord Cawdor, by Sir Joshua Reynolds, and of 
Lady Cawdor by William Breechey ; and in an adjoining room 
an original portrait of the late Lord Holland. The offices are all 
well arranged, and the stables forming a detached quadrangular 
building are in a style of princely pretension. Of Stackpool, 
without straining compliment, it may be safely said that there 
are few places which display more magnificence \yithout or more 
sumptuous hospitality and elegant comfort within. 

This, like all baronial residences in the country, had its mill, 
an inseparable appendage on the little stream below it, though 
long since swept away ; but of which Giraldus has left a memor- 
able record, as connected with a most ludicrous story he relates. 
But to sum up the importance of Stackpool it stands in the 
midst of a contiguous property of fifteen thousand acres of the 
most valuable land without the intervention of one incapable of 
cultivation. 

The first possessor of Stackpool we hear of was Sir Elidur 
or Leonard de Stackpool, who stands at the head of all pedigrees 
of his name ; the same whom Giraldus mentions and who, no 
doubt, took the cross at the time Baldwin made his transit 
through this country preaching the crusade. From him not 
more than two descents were cast before the great possessions 
of this family fell amongst daughters, the co-heiresses of Sir 
Richard Stackpool, one of whom, Joan, who had Stackpool to 
her share, married Sir Richard Vernon of Hodnet in Stafford- 
shire. While the estate remained in that name I do not find any 
of them residing in the old baronial mansion, nor do we find it 
regularly inhabited again till after the year 1536 (for then the 
Vernons owned it), about which time the Lorts got possession of 
it, but whether by marriage or purchase I know not. In the 
family of Lort it continued till its union with that of Campbell, as 
I have said before, in the person of Sir Alexander Campbell, 
w^hose great grandson Lord Cawdor, now enjoys it. 

A younger son of this house, most likely a brother of the 
crusader, was one of the adventurers who joined Strongbow on 
his expedition to Ireland ; and settling there laid the founda- 
tion of a family of some rank m the county of Clare, where his 
descendants still continue, and by one of whom Lord Cawdor's 
grandfather was presented with two prints, one of a warrior 
taken I suppose from some monument ; the other of a dignified 



ORIGIN 1 3 

clergyman of the same family, with some short account of it 
since its migration from Pembrokeshire. 

Cross the bridge to the park from which you have a delight- 
ful view of the house, as in the annexed plate, from the elegant 
pencil of Lady Cawdor, appears. A pleasant ride along the 
park brings me to the respectable village of Stackpool having 
its cross, where the ancient Lord's vassals resided, within the 
reach of his arbitrary call in war or peace to render their services, 
and where the present Lord's happier tenantry live in habita- 
tions that bespeak a degree of comfort and independence, which 
can not be felt and enjoyed as it ought but by a contrast with 
the humiliating picture of the feudal age. 

Hence I descend to a vale on the right, where a private gate 
was unlocked, leading through a woody avenue to the church 
of Cheriton, or as it is sometimes called Stackpool-Elidur from 
its founder, which stands at the head of this sequestered dell. 
The church is a plain building, but with a tower, consisting of a 
nave and chancel, having two small aisles on the south side, one 
occupied by the family pew, and the other entered from the 
chancel the family burying place ; and on the north side of the 
chancel, under a wrought canopy of stone, lies a cross-legged 
knight, his right hand on his sword and his left bearing his 
shield, evidently once painted over with his arms ; and there can 
be no doubt of its representing Elidur de Stackpool. The sides 
of the tomb are in compartments, each compartment containing 
a figure, but so disfigured by white-wash with which the cham- 
pion of the cross, as well as every other part of the monument, 
has been so plastered and replastered, that nothing of their 
character or design can be made out. On the south side of the 
chancel, but not under a canopy, is the efitigy of a lady, well 
executed in a hard yellowish stone, in a very singular costume 
particularly the headdress. In the family mausoleum are two 
monuments of a more recent date ; and in the belfry aisle two 
effigies, with the clerical habit and tonsure, one uninscribed and 
the other with an inscription too illegible to identify the dead."*

and 1809. 



14 STACKPOLE FAMILY 

In this citation from Fenton allusion is made to a ludicrous 
story told by Giraldus Cambrensis or Gerald the Welshman, 
sometimes called Gerald de Barri, who accompanied Archbishop 
Baldwin of Canterbury through Wales in 1188, when Baldwin 
preached the crusade led by Richard the Lion-Hearted, and 
wrote in Latin an account of the Itinerary. The story is of in- 
terest and gives positive evidence by a contemporary historian of 
the existence of Sir Elidur and of Stackpole Court in the twelfth 
century. He says, "In the province of Pembrokeshire another 
instance occurred, about the sam.e time, of a spirit's appearing 
in the house of Eliodorus de Stakepole, not only sensibly but 
visibly, under the form, of a red-headed young man, who called 
himself Simon. Seizing the keys from the person to whom they 
were entrusted, he impudently assumed the steward's ofitice, 
which he managed so prudently and providently that all things 
seemed to abound under his care, and there was no deficiency in 
the house. Whatever the master or mistress secretly thought of 
having for their daily use or provision, he procured with wonder- 
ful agility, and without any previous directions, saying you 
wished that to be done and it shall be done for you. He was also 
well acquainted with their treasures and secret hoards, and 
sometimes upbraided them on that account ; for as soon as they 
seemed to act sparingly and avariciously, he used to say, "Why 
are you afraid to spend that heap of gold or silver, since your 
lives are of so short duration and the money you so cautiously 
hoard up will never do you any good?" He gave the choicest 
meat and drink to the rustics and hired servants, saying that 
those persons should be abundantly supplied by whose labors 
they were acquired. Whatever he determined should be done, 
whether pleasing or displeasing to his master or mistress (for as 
we have said before he knew all their secrets), he completed in 
his usual expeditious manner without their consent. He never 
went to church nor uttered one Catholic word. He did not 
sleep in the house, but was ready at his office in the morning. 
He was at length observed by some of the family to hold his 
nightly converse near a mill and a pool of water, upon which dis- 
covery he was removed. Simimoned the next morning before 
the master of the house and his lady, and receiving his discharge 
he delivered up the keys which he had lield for upwards of forty

days. Being earnestly interrogated at his departure who he 
was? he answered that he was begotten upon the body of a 
rustic in that parish by a demon in the shape of her husband ; 
naming the man and his father-in-law then dead and his mother 
still alive ; the truth of which the woman upon examination 
openly avowed."* 

It will be observed that the name is spelled variously. It 
seems to be of Welsh origin. It is found in an old Heraldic 
Visitation of Wales written Syr Elidir Ystackpwl. The Latin- 
ized form of Giraldus is Eliodorus which is anglicized as Elidur, 
Elidore, and Elidyr. Observe, too, that Giraldus spells the sur- 
name Stakepole, which in his day meant Stackpool. The com- 
mon spelling is good enough, if its original meaning is remem- 
bered. 

Fenton errs in the statement that all the old pedigrees of the 
Stackpole family begin with Sir Elidyr. Indeed if he had more 
carefully examined the old print, which he says was presented to 
the grandfather of the then Lord Cawdor, he would have found 
underneath the portrait of the knight in Norman armor the fol- 
lowing bit of ancient history : —

Esq. ^t|o vv?as MeEr\ber for tl\at County." 

The "dignified clergyman" mentioned before by Fenton was 
no other than John Stacpoole Esq. of Cragbrien Castle in the 
County of Clare, Ireland. Under his portrait it is recorded that 
he "departed this life the eighteenth of April 1771, at the 
advanced age of Ninety-Seven, retaining to that late Period the 
most eminent Abilities, joined to the greatest Philanthropy of 
Heart, so that it remained a Question whether he was most Be- 
loved or Admired, and though His Mansion was the Seat of the 
most unbounded Hospitality, His CofTers ever open to the Indi- 
gent and Deserving, and His Indulgence to a numerous Ten- 
antry seemed more like the Parent than the Landlord, to the 
establishment of many Families ; yet He increased His Patri- 
mony to that degree and purchased so many and extensive 



ORIGIN 1 7 

Tracts of Land, as to leave behind Him one of the Largest and 
best Circumstanced Estates in Ireland, and so far was He from 
taking advantage of any One's Distress, that All who ever dealt 
with Him acknowledge Him as the Fairest and most Liberal 
of Purchasers. 

If Learning, Eloquence, and Graceful Ease, 
Sense to advise and sprightly Wit to please, 
And every Innate Virtue Heaven e'er gave. 
Could make Immortal, He had escaped the Grave." 

This fulsome praise reminds one of the old adage, De morhiis 
nil nisi bonum. It doubtless proceeded from the pen of Count 
George Stacpoole. There lies before me the first little volume 
of a work in four parts, entitled "Some Short Historical Anec- 
dotes, with Remarks Relative to Ireland," dedicated to John 
Stacpoole, Esq. of Cragbrien by his most dutiful nephew George 
Stacpoole and published at Corke in 1762. About this time 
George Stacpoole was trying to establish his claim to the extinct 
baronage of De la Zouche, and in 1776 he had a Genealogical 
Table prepared of the old Stackpole family of Pembrokeshire 
with the varied coats of arms of families related by marriage. 
It seems that it was drawn up by the College of Heraldry, and 
while it confirms much in the account given above, it differs in 
several particulars. Both accounts spell the old name Stacpoole, 
though it is confessed that the second o crept into the name in 
Ireland as late as the year 1700. The older spelling is here 
restored. The accoimt is as follows : —

Additional historical light may modify also the statements of 
this Table. It is certain that Joan Stackpole, who married 
Richard Vernon, was sister, not daughter, of Isabell. In an 
Inquisitio post mortem Laurentii Berkrolls militis taken at Newn- 
ham. County Gloucester, 23 Nov. 141 1, it is stated, that "Sir 
Laurence held the castle, manor, and lordship of Coityf, and the 
manors of Newcastle, Newland, and Lanhary in the county of 
Glanmorgan, as one of the heirs of Richard Turberville, on 
whose death the inheritance of the same devolved on Sir Lau- 
rence as the son of Katherine, one of the sisters of the said Rich- 
ard ; on Isabella, daughter of Richard Stakepole, son of Mar- 
garet, another sister ; on John de la Beer Knt. whose descent is 
not stated ; and on William Gamage, son of Sarah another sister 
of Richard Turberville. The jurors then state that Joan, late the 
wife of Sir Richard Vernon, is the nearest heir of Isabella, being 
her sister and upwards of forty years of age.* 

Burke's Hist, of the Commoners says that "Sir Pain Turber- 
ville, Knt. of Coyty Castle, married Gwenllian, dau. of Sir 
Richard Talbot, Knt. and left issue, Gilbert Knt. of Coyty, d. s. p. 
Richard d. s. p. ; Catharine, m. to Sir Roger Berkrolls, Knt. ; 
Agnes, m. to Sir John de la Bere, Knt. ; Sarah, m. to Sir William 
Gamage, Knt., who became Lord of Coyty ; and Margaret, m. to 
Sir Richard Stackpole, Knt." 

Burke's Peerage (p. 1430 Ed. of 1895) says that "Sir Richard 
de Vernon, Knt. of Haddon and Ilarleston, b. 1370, m. Johanna, 
second dau. and heiress with her sister Isabella of Richard Stack- 
pole. (After her sister Isabella's death, who was widow of Rice 
ap Griffith, sh.e became possessed of the Griffith and Somerville 
estates.) Sir Richard Vernon died in 1401, leaving two sons 
and two daughters." 

As to the correctness of these pedigrees of the early Stack- 
In the Table the name of the second son of Sir William is not given. 
The opinion has been stated that this was Sir Elidyr, the crusader. His 
daughter's name is not given. About this time a Mary Stackpole mar- 
ried Richard Champney, Esq., whose ancestor is found in the Roll of 
Battle Abbey. — Burke's Hist, of the Commoners. Vol. III., p. 556.

poles of Pembrokeshire, there is reason to beheve, from informa- 
tion at the Herald's College at London, that old MSS. are there 
preserved on which the pedigrees are founded. That they are 
not based on imagination is also proved by the fact that the mis- 
take concerning Joan, wife of Sir Richard Vernon, is based on 
the authority of the Harleian MSS. which contain the two fol- 
lowing entries : — 

" Richardus Vernon de H addon, mil. m. Jennefta filia Richardus 
Griffith, militis, consanguinico ct hccres Rich. Stakcpoole, niilitis." 

"Sir Richard Vernon of the Peak m. Jone, dau. of Sir Ric. 
Grififith by Isabel, dau. and coheir of Sir Ric. Stackpole." 

Dr. Powell's translation of Caradoc's Plist. of Wales, editions 
of 1774, 1812 and 1832, gives Stackpole pedigrees agreeing in 
the main with the above, and evidently derived from them, since 
the pedigrees are not found in his editions of 1584 and 1697. 

There were two extinct baronages of De la Zouche, and 
Count George Stacpoole, above mentioned and to be further 
mentioned in the next chapter, laid claim by mistake to the 
wrong one. Among some papers at Cragbrien was found a 
translation of a French Document by M. Manguen, who was 
legal agent in the suit of the heirs of Count Stacpoole, which 
states that "George might have become Lord de la Zouche 

Codnor and Ashby His rights, which are proven by two acts 

of heraldic inquest, were acknowledged by George HL on the 
report of Lord Exeter. Two tables are added to this, extracted 
from two heraldic works printed, engraved and published under 
the warrant of the King at Arms, a Royal oflficer in England. 
There may also be seen, on page 329 of the volume annexed, the 
veracity of this descent and of the foregoing claims, which are 
subjects of public notoriety in the three kingdoms." The "acts 
of heraldic inquest" are, doubtless, the two given above, and 
the "volume annexed" is Vol. I. of Select Views in Leicester- 
shire, by J. Throsby (1789), which at page 329 mentions the 
m.arriage of the daughter of Alan de la Zouche to Robert Stac- 
poole. "Alan, Lord Zouche, died in 71st year of Edward H., 
leaving his successor Alan and three daughters. Isabella, the 
eldest, was married to Robert Stacpoole, the descendant of Guil- 
laume de Stackpoole de Montvalai, who came over with William 
the Conqueror at the same time with Alan-de-la-zouch. The 



ORIGIN 2 1 

said Robert and his wife afterwards settled in Ireland and were 
the founders of the family in that kingdom.* 

It is clear that the Isabella, dau. of Lord de la Zouch could 
not have married the Robert Stackpole who entered Ireland at 
the time of Strongbow's conquest, nearly two centuries earlier. 
The family was well established in Ireland before this marriage. 
This second Robert may have been the Mayor of Dublin of that 
name, to be mentioned in the next chapter. 

Here may be cited the statement of Edward Laws, "The 
Stackpoles of County Clare, there can be little doubt, are 
descended from Robert de Stackpole, a brother of Sir Elidur de 
Stackpole of Stackpole, Pembroke. "f 

It is noticeable that all these pedigrees make no mention of 
Sir Elid3T who is certainly a veritable historical character. No 
reconciliation is attempted. The records of that time are too 
meager. It is certain that some knight of Norman descent set- 
tled about the end of the eleventh century in Pembrokeshire and 
called himself from the locality of his castle "de Stakepol," i. e. 
Stack-pool. He may have been the Sir Richard of the engrav- 
ing and his father may have been the " Guillaume de Montvalai," 
who is said to have come over with the Concj[ueror. His 
descendants for three centuries lived at Stackpole Court, which 
finally passed by way of marriage of its heiress into the family 
of Vernon, then of the Lorts, then of the Campbells of Cawdor 
Castle in Scotland. "Elizabeth, sister and heir of Sir Gilbert 
Lort, Bart, of Stackpole Court, married, 1689, Sir Alexander 
Campbell of Cawdor, and their son and heir, John Campbell, 
married, 1726, Mary, dau. and coheir of Lewis Pryse of Gogar- 
then, being parents of Pryse Campbell, the father of the first 
Baron Cawdor. "i: The late Earl of Cawdor, John F. Vaughan

22 STACKPOLE FAMILY 

Campbell, born 1817, died 29 March 1898 and was buried in the 
Church of Stackpole-Elidyr. His oldest son, formerly Viscount 
Evelyn, born 1847, succeeded to the Earldom. 

Before leaving this part of the subject it may be proper to 
speak of a visit made to the ancient cradle of the family, Stack- 
pole Court, in July 1897. Setting out on foot from Pembroke 
early in the morning, I spent the entire day in visiting the estate 
of Lord Cawdor. The road winds over hill and dale through 
rolling land of great fertility, divided into pastures and meadows 
"by picturesque hedge-rows. Surely the old Normans can be for- 
given for having been captivated by the extensive prospects 
of natural wealth and beauty. At the end of an avenue 
of trees the porter's lodge is seen with broad meadows 
beyond. A mile further on is the Keeper's House, upon 
which the sunbeams pour through an opening in the 
dense foliage. The lands of the Earl are heavily wooded 
with beech, fir, chestnut and lime trees, round which 
twines luxuriant ivy. Well made drives and walks wind 
throughout the estate. The present approach to the mansion is 
hy a bridge of a single large arch, the eight-arch bridge, described 
by Fenton, being a mile further south and now little used. The 
house has been remodeled since Fenton's time. Porticoes and 
projections in front relieve the monotony of the lengthy struc- 
ture. The spacious lawn in front is tastefully broken by shrub- 
bery here and there, and trees with wide-spreading branches 
bound it on the north and east. The stables are to the south of 
the lawn, at right angles with the house, and half concealed by 
vines and foliage. The Earl being away, I was courteously 
.shown through the principal apartments by the house-keeper. 
The entrance is adorned with weapons and armor, and leads by 
easy ascent immediately to the elegantly furnished drawing- 
room, which runs lengthwise through the middle of the mansion. 
In front is the dining-room ; the library extends through a suite 
of rooms on the west side. It contains about ten thousand vol- 
umes of choicest books in elegant bindings. The walls of all 
the rooms are almost as profusely decorated as a picture gallery 
with paintings, especially portraits of several generations of the 
family. I was shown a portion of the cellar, whose ribbed vault 
is thought to preserve the original architecture of the old castle 




POST-OFFICE AT STACKPOLE, WALES. 



(iniiiii of Scliool-Chilihrn. 



ORIGIN 23 

inhabited by Sir Elidyr Stackpole. A picture of it may be seen 
in Laws' History of Little England above cited. In the rear 
of the mansion is a broad terrace overlooking the artificial pond 
which stretches two miles or more toward the sea. The view 
from this point is charming. The conservatory of flowers 
adjoins it on the north side. 

After partaking of refreshments hospitably offered I wan- 
dered through the shady walks to the village called Stackpole, 
where dwell the tenants of Lord Cawdor. There is, about the 
village, an appearance of neatness, comfort and contentment, if 
not of wealth. If a wage of fourteen shillings per week is not 
high, certainly the rent of a pretty thatched cottage, with garden 
and cow, for four pounds per annum is not exorbitant. The 
children were happily gathered, to the number of about one 
hundred, in a school taught by a master and two lady assistants. 
The children were bright, intelligent and fairly well clothed. 
The ancient cross mentioned by Fenton is broken down and 
fallen mto decay. 

I next proceeded to the church of Stackpole-Elidyr. The 
old large square tower testifies to its Norman origin. The rest 
of the church has been repaired and rebuilt repeatedly, yet the 
general style of the original architecture has been preserved. It 
is not large, will accommodate perhaps two hundred persons. It 
is in the form of the Latin Cross, without aisles. In the chancel 
is the object of chief interest, the reputed monument of Sir 
Elidyr Stackpole, with the knight stretched out in efifigy on the 
top. There is no inscription visible. One side and the base are 
hidden by recent masonry. The efifigy is cut in limestone, rep- 
resenting him as clad in Norman mail of fine-linked steel, show- 
ing only a portion of the face with a slight mustache. There 
are small defences in plate armor for elbows, wrists, knees and 
legs below the knees. A long straight sword is in the grasp of 
his right hand, and a kite-shaped shield rests on his left arm. 
A dog lies as a support for his feet. If the shield ever bore a 
coat of arms painted thereon, as Fenton suggests, it is no longer 
traceable, though the greater part of the whitewash has been 
removed from the monument. The legs are crossed at the 
knee after the manner of crusaders. The sarcophagus rests 
beneath a sculptured arch. There are six short figures on its 



24 STACKPOLE FAMILY 

frieze, in high rehef, apparently in oriental costume. Three are 
males, three females. 

The effigy of his wife on the south side of the chancel has 
two small dogs at her feet, also two kneeling females, while two 
males support her pillowed head. The headdress is indeed sin- 
gular and indescribable. An elaborate poke-bonnet is the only 
suggestion I offer. Four figures are on the frieze in high relief, 
two of them clad in Norman mail and sword. 

On the south side of the chancel and opening from it is a 
small chantry, in which what is said to be the original stone altar 
is preserved. It is supposed to be of the seventh century and 
may have been originally a tombstone. The same chantry con- 
tains two ancient effigies without inscription, a mask of some 
warrior clad in Norman mail (perhaps it was the Sir Richard of 
the engraving), mural and floor inscriptions, commemorating the 
Lorts and Campbells from 1613 A.D. downwards, in which the 
Court is called Stackpoole, Stackpool and Stackpole. 

All around the church sleep long and quietly the generations 
that have filled the past eight centuries. The rector kindly 
received me, invited me to lunch and afterward showed me 
through the grounds of Lord Cawdor. After leaving him I 
walked by a narrow winding path along the margin of the pond 
or inlet two miles or so to Broadhaven, at the mouth of which 
is the Stack Rock which gives the name to the Pool. It stands 
several hundred yards from the shore and may rise to the height 
of one hundred feet, an irregular mass of wave-beaten rock. It 
vv'as, doubtless, eight centuries ago much larger than it now is. 
The Pool, which once was probably an inlet of two miles or more 
in length and a refuge for vessels, is now filled up with sand 
nearly to its mouth, a process hastened by the building of a dam 
to create an artificial pond. The sand barrens on the clifT are 
an excellent rabbit warren. The view of Stackpole Head, a mas- 
sive promontory, is bold and beautiful. Just around it is a little 
port and wharf called Stackpole Quay, which with its surround- 
ings forms one of the most pleasing views on the estate. 

The name Stackpole seems to have died out in Wales, and 
the persons of that name now residing in London and Liverpool 
are descended from the branch in Clare County, Ireland. There 
is a street called Stackpole Road in Bristol, Eng., showing that 




SIR ELIDYR STACKPOLE. 



ORIGIN 25 

a branch of the family once hved there, but none of that name 
can now be found. In the Modern Domesday Book or Hst of 
land-ownefs of England and Wales, published in 1873, there is 
a Mrs. Stackpole residing in Wilts. I learned from a Mr. Stac- 
poole in London that she died not long ago, leaving a property 
worth half a million of dollars, and no heir could be found. 

Of ancient English Stackpoles, besides those already named, 
history mentions only a few. Eustachius de Stakepole is said, 
by Giraldus Cambrensis, to have had money extorted from him 
by the Bishop of St. David's, toward the end of the twelfth cen- 
tury. The Calendar of Patent Rolls mentions "David de Stake- 
pole, parson of the church at Okeford in 1297"; also "Adam 
Stakpol, chaplain, who has estate in the chantry of St. Edmond, 
in the church of Wodyton, in the Isle of Wight," in 1380; also 
"Sir Richard de Stakepol," witness to a writing of Aymer de 
Valencia, Earl of Pembroke, dated 15 May 1331. The family 
seems never to have been numerous in Wales and England, but 
rather to have early emigrated to Ireland and to have multiplied 
there. Now the name is dying out gradually in Ireland by 
reason of many emigrations to foreign lands. 



II. 

THE STACKPOLES IN IRELAND 



In the pedigrees already given Robert Stackpole is said to 
have gone over to Ireland with Strongbow in the year 1168. In 
a History of the City of Dublin* an alphabetical list is given of 
such adventurers as arrived in Ireland during the first sixteen 
years from the invasion of Strongbow, collected partly from the 
Histories of Maurice Regan and Giraldus Cambrensis and partly 
from manuscript records. In this list at the end of the R's there 
IS a Robert . Maurice Regan mentions a knight, Rob- 
ert , killed in Connaught. This may have been the 

Robert Stackpole of the Genealogical Table. Mr. Thomas F. 
Westropp of Dublin, who has given much study to the history 
of the Stackpole family and has rendered me great assistance, 
says that "Walter Stackpole's name is on the 1190 Roll of Dub- 
lin Citizens. Elias Stackpole was Provost (Mayor) of Cork in 
1249, and Richard and Simon Stackpole were on a jury in 1282." 
The Calendar of State Papers mentions Philip and John Stack- 
pole as tenants near Dublin in 125 1. Walter and William 
Stakepol are mentioned, in the Register of the Abbey of St. 
Thomas, made earlier than 1268, as sometime land-owners in 
Dublin, John and William Stakepoll were at Dublin in 1301. 
The following are on record as officials in Dublin : John 
Stakebold, Bailiff, 1308; Robert Stakbold, Bailiff, 1374; Robert 
Stakebold, Provost, 1376 and 1386.! This Robert may have 
been the one who married Isabella, dau. of Lord De la Zouche, 
mentioned in first chapter, 

*By Warburton, Whitelaw and Walsh, 1818. Vol. I., pp. 154-6. 
fWalter Harris' History and Antiquities of the City of Dublin, 1766, 
p. 498. 



THE STACKPOLES IN IRELAND 27 

There is evidence that the family was numerous in Cork in 
the thirteenth and fourteenth century. Besides EHas Stackpole, 
the Provost of 1249, there were John and Agnes, his wife, in 
1291 ; Abraham, Mayor in 1321 ; EHas, Mayor in 1342 ; Andrew, 
Sheriff in 1392. In the Counties of Kerry and Meath also 
Stackpoles are mentioned. 

In Irish church history the Stackpoles appear. "Patrick 
Stackboll, late Abbot of the Rock of Cashel" is mentioned in 
1554; "Redmond Stacbolde," son of the Dean of Cashel, in 
1571 ; "William Stacboll," the Lord Butler's Chaplain, in 1538; 
^'Sir Philip Stackpole (in parentheses is added Stackbold) priest, 
dwelling at Kiltenan," in 1590; "William Stacpoolle," a scholar 
at Cashel, who receives two vicarages, in 1607. At a Parliament 
held at Drogheda, in 1460, Sir Thomas Barthe was summoned 
to appear for outrage upon Dr. John Stackbolle, one of the 
dignitaries of the Abbey of Navan. (He was rector of Kilberry 
in 1449.) Barthe had robbed Stackbolle and sent ruffians to the 
Abbey, who kidnapped him, cut out his tongue and put out his 
eyes. He was carried back to the Abbey and cast before the 
image of the Blessed Virgin, and by her grace, mediation and 
miraculous power he was restored to sight and speech.* 

During the fifteenth century there was a large emigration 
from other parts of Ireland to Limerick. The Stackpoles dis- 
appear in the history of Dublin and of Cork and are found in 
Limerick in prominent positions. Descendants of the Limerick 
Stackpoles are found again in Cork and Dublin two centuries 
later. The Histories of Limerick by Ferrar (1767), Fitzgerald 
and McGregor (1826), and Lenihan (1866), all give chronological 
lists of Provosts and BailifTs, or, as they were called after 1609, 
Mayors and Sheriffs. They agree substantially, with only slight 
variations. The following is the list of magistrates bearing the 
name Stackpole, variously spelled by these historians: —

Philip Stackpole Sheriff 1688 

This list shows that the Stackpoles were numerous and 
prominent at Limerick. It is of interest to notice their names 
up to the last date. Since their appearance in Ireland, history, 
so far as I have been able to gather it, records the name Robert 
Stackpole five times ; Richard, five ; James, five ; John, ten ; Nich- 
olas, two ; Philip, three ; William, three ; Maurice, three ; 
Thomas, three ; Bartholomew, two ; Walter, two ; Elias, three ; 
Andrew, two ; Patrick, two ; Simon, Abraham, Clement, Leon- 
ard, Isabel, Lucy, Mary, Juliana, Joanna, Agnes, Ellen, Chris- 
tian, Dymphna, Catherine, Gennett, and Margaret once each. 
Scarcely an Irish name appears. The most are of Norman 
origin. After the beginning of the fifteenth century James, 
John, Philip and William are found in almost every family and 
generation of the Stackpoles. 

We come now to an historical character, of whom there is 
more definite information. Bartholomew Stackpole, who is 
mentioned as a merchant in Limerick, in 1591, and appears in 
the above list as Bailiff, in 1596, had a son James, who married 
Christian, daughter of Nicholas Comyn, by whom he had a son, 
Bartholomew, born in 1619, who married Mary, daughter of Dr. 
Thomas F. Arthur. 

This Bartholomew Stackpole was Recorder of Limerick and 
signed the capitulation of that city to the troops of Cromwell 
commanded by Gen. Henry Ireton, 27 Oct., 165 1. He, with 
several Stackpoles, was "transplanted" to County Clare, i. e. 
they were deprived of their estates, and other estates of one 
third, or in some cases of two thirds, their value were assigned 



THE STACKPOLES IN IRELAND 29 

to them. The transplantation certificates of the Stackpoles give 
us a picture of the family two and a half centuries ago and read 
as follows : — 

" 1653. Bartholomew Stackpoole of Limerick made a decla- 
ration that he was aged 34 years, of indifferent tall stature, flaxen 
hair ; John Stackpoole, aged 28 years, tall stature, flaxen hair ; 
Thomas Stackpoole ; James Stackpoole, son to the said Bathw. S., 
aged 10; Christian, daur. to the said Barthw., aged 8; Diphna, 
another dau. of the said B., aged 6 years ; Arthur, son to the 
said Barthw." John and Thomas were brothers of Barthol- 
omew. There were also transplanted "Clement Stacpoll, aged 
26 years, flaxen hair, low stature ; Ellis, his wife, black hair, tall 
stature"; also "Ignatius Stacpoole of Limerick, orphant, aged 
eleven years, flaxen hair, full face, low stature ; Katherine Stac- 
poole, orphant, sister to the said Ignatius, aged eight years, flaxen 
hair, full face, having no substance to relieve themselves, but 
desireth the benefit of his claim before the Commissioners of 
the revenue."* 

Bartholomew Stackpole settled at Enagh, where he named 
his residence "STACKPOLE COURT" in commemoration of 
the old cradle of the family in Pembrokeshire, showing that the 
Norman origin of the family was well known two centuries and 
a half ago, and showing too, how the name was then spelled. 
" Its picturesque ivied ruins stand among the lakes of Kilki- 
shen." Bartholomew's daughter, Dymphna, married Col. Ed- 
mond Pery, ancestor of the Earls of Limerick. Their son, the 
Rev. Stackpole Pery, married Jane, daughter of Archdeacon 
Twigg of Limerick and left two sons and several daughters. 
Edmond Sexten Pery, his heir, born 1718, was Speaker of the 
Irish House of Commons, and was raised to the Peerage as Vis- 
count Pery in 1786. One of the titles of the Earl of Limerick 
(1809-1844), found upon his sarcophagus in the Pery Chapel 
of Limerick Cathedral, is "Baron Foxford of Stackpole Court 
in the County of Clare." Through the marriage of Dymphna a 
large portion of the estates of Bartholomew Stackpole descended 
to the Earl of Limerick, which he still holds. 

*Copied from MSS. of the Stacpoole family of Edenvale, Ennis, Co. 
Clare, Ireland, and the last two from Prendergast's Cromwellian Settle- 
ments of Ireland, p. 3S- The original transplantation certificates are in 
the Record Tower, Dublin, unless now transferred to the Inns of the 
Four Courts. 



III. 

THE STACKPOLE COAT OF ARMS 

The Harleian Roll of Arms, assigned by the Encyclopaedia 
Britannica to the reign of Henry III. (1216-1272), by others 
placed a little later, contains the name " Stakepol."* 

In the Parliamentary Roll of Arms,t of date about 1300 A. D. 
IS found in old Norman French the following : — Sire Richard de 
stakcpol dc argent a nil lion rampant de gonles od le Coler dc or. i. e. 
a red rampant lion having a gold collar, on a silver shield. This 
is the coat of arms of the old Pembrokeshire Stackpoles of Stack- 
pole Court, to which all Stackpoles are equally entitled as an 
historical emblem, and to which no one is entitled by strict laws 
of heraldry, since no one can prove a direct descent. The 
Edenvale branch of the family, in Ireland, assumed it some 
time ago, at first without the gold collar, and have added a crest 
viz. "On a ducal coronet a pelican in her piety, all ppr." i. e. 
a pelican feeding in their nest three of her young with drops of 
blood drawn from her own breast, according to an old legend. 
Under the Arms is the motto, PRO DEO ET PRO P ATRIA ; 
over the Crest, I DIE FOR THOSE I LOVE. Some of this 
family a century ago, either by mistake or as a mark of cadency, 
reversed the colors and had a silver lion on a red shield. 

The origin of the Crest is probably as follows. Over the 
door of the Sexten Vault, outside the wall of the Pery Chapel of 
St. Mary Cathedral, Limerick, is a corbel in the center flanked 
to the left with a seven-headed dragon as type of Antichrist and 
to the right with a pelican as type of Christ. The bird is pour- 
ing its blood over its dying young to revive them, not feeding 

*See Genealogist, London, Vol. III. New Series, p. 40. 
tSee Genealogist. Vol. XII. p. 273. 



THE STACKPOLE COAT OF ARMS 3 1 

them as in the present Crest. Both are symboHc, one of the 
atonement, the other of the sacrament. Finding this device on 
their old burial place the Stackpoles adopted the good emblem 
as a Crest, and the English motto is, of course, derived from it 
and is quite superfluous. It dates, perhaps, from about 1500 
A.D. In the earliest Stackpole seal of the family in Ireland, 
about 1760, the pelican's young are omitted. 

Edmondson's Complete Body of Heraldry (London, 1780) 
under the name Stakepoule, gives another coat of arms, "Az. a 
chev. ar. betw. three cresents or," i. e. on a blue field a silver 
chevron between three golden crescents. In later works on her- 
aldry this does not appear, and the branch of the family that 
bore it is presumably extinct. 

Burke's General Armory for 1878 gives also the following: — 
"Stackpoole. Or. an heraldric tiger pass. sa. Crest. — On a rock 
a fort in flames." It is not known to what branch of the family 
this belongs. 




IV. 



PEDIGREE OF THE CLARE CO. STACPOOLES 



The following pedigrees are based upon the MS. of Mr. 
Thomas George Stacpoole Mahon (1883) annotated, revised and 
enlarged by Mr. Thomas J. Westropp (1888). Mr. Mahon based 
his work on an Edenvale pedigree, "originally dictated by 
William Stacpoole of Claghanatinny, in Paris, in 1824, on the 
occasion of the great law-suit there against Count George Stac- 
poole," and compiled by Mr. Francis Moore, dated at Paris Aug. 
15, 1844. Mr. Mahon made extensive investigations, which have 
been amply supplemented by Mr. Westropp. I have ventured 
to make a few modifications and additions, warranted by a study 
of Wills at Dublin and by a registered pedigree found at the Her- 
ald's College at Dublin, though the historical vahie of the last 
has been doubted. There are numerous obscure branches of the 
Stackpole family in Ireland, and ofTshoots from them have come 
to the United States from time to time, especially during the 
present century. It has been, of course, impossible to trace all 
these, yet herein may be found some hints which may help any 
of the name to find their ancestry. The names of a few, who 
died young or without issue, have been omitted in the following 
Diagrams.

34 STACKPOLE FAMILY 

NOTES ON DIAGRAM I. 

It is presumable that John and Thomas, brothers of Barthol- 
omew Stackpole, died without issue. They were living in 1685. 

The male line of the senior branch of Clement .Stackpole be- 
came extinct by the death of Count George Stacpoole in Paris. 
He was educated at Cork and was for a time at Oxford. In 1763 
he was High Sheriff of Clare County. He inherited the estates 
of his uncle John of Cragbrien, who died intestate in 1771. 
George went to live in Grosvenor Place, London, and finally in 
Paris, where Louis XVIII. made him a Count because of his 
wealth. At his decease in 1824 he is said to have had £600,000 
deposited at Lafitte's Bank in Paris. The litigation, which had 
been going on fifty years between him and the next of kin, was 
continued after his death, his will in favor of his illegitimate son 
having been set aside. This son, from whom are descended the 
French Stacpooles, was Richard Fitz George Stacpoole, born 
17 Aug. 1787. His mother was Kitty Gingell, who died at 
Sidmouth 28 Oct. 1809. He m. Betsey, dau. of Major Francis 
and Margery (Simpson) Tulloch. The suits were compromised 
in 1828, half of the property in dispute going to this son and half 
to the next of kin of the Count and of his uncle. The Count's 
mother, Katherine, once had an adventure which is related in 
Froude's English in Ireland. In Jan. 1776, the Count had the 
portrait of Sir Richard Stacpoole engraved, as a letter shows. 

In Aug. 1897 I met a priest in Dublin Avho said that a Mar- 
quis Stacpoole of France not long before became a priest, after 
being left a widower, and that he came to Ireland to witness the 
marriage of his son to an Irish lady. These were doubtless 
descendants of Count George. I have heard that they own a 
Chateau of some pretensions in the sovith of France and rank 
among the nobility. Henry De Vere Stacpoole, author of a 
French novel. The Rapin, recently published, evidently belongs 
to this familyX( , 

The late William Church Stacpoole of Kingstown School, 
near Dublin, was descended from John Stacpoole of Cragbrien. 
He was graduated from Trinity College, Dublin, in 1842 and 
received the Degrees of LL.D. in 1849 ^"<^^ D.D. in 1869. A son 
of his, William Henry Stacpoole, graduated from Trinity College, 
Dublin, in 1870 and was honored with LL.B. and LL.D. in 1880. 




JOHN STACPOOLE OF CRAGBRIEN. 

See pp. 10 aud 33. 



PEDIGREE OF THE CLARE CO. STACPOOLES 35 

Miss Florence Stacpoole of London is a daughter of William 
Church Stacpoole of Kingstown. She is a lecturer and author of 
note. Has published several medical works. 

Bartholomew Stackpole gave to Mary Arthur, before their 
marriage the following gifts : — 

"A small goulde cross; a goulde ring weighing 22 carats; 
two small dittos 5 carats each ; £6 in silver ; a small case of instru- 
ments ; a pair of imbroadered glowes ; 4 yeards of satten rybbine ; 
2 yeards of broad satten rybbine ; i yeard and ^ of boane lace 
worth 8 s per yeard ; i blak hoode of duble currle ; i pair of whyte 
glowes ; I payer of Spanish leader shooes ; X yeardes of blak 
pynked satten ; 9 yeards of skey colored tabbey ; i whyte fann 
wath a silver handle ; i crowne lowe hood ; 6 payers of whyte 
glowes ; 4 yeards of 8d broad satten rybbine ; 4 yeards of French 
sarge with 5 unces of silver lace ; i large taffeta hood ; 2 ivorye 
combes ; i payer of p'fumed cordouan glowes ; a small silver 
scale."* 

There were emigrations from Wales to Clare County, Ireland 
at a late date. So late as 1507 a Stackpole passed over with his 
wife, one Gennett Gwyn, and took with him a letter of confra- 
ternity from the Superior of the Friars Eremite, which letter was 
found with a number of old documents relating to Clare 
County.* 115S343

EDENVALE, ENNIS, COUNTY CLARE, IRELAND. 



PEDIGREE OF THE CLARE CO. STACPOOLES ^il 

NOTES ON DIAGRAM II. 

Besides the five children mentioned in the preceding Dia- 
gram Richard John Delazouche Stacpoole had another dau. 
Jane b. 28 June 1834, who m. Nov. 1858, Henry Vereker and 
d. in 1859, their dau. Henrietta Jane Stacpoole Vereker m. 2 
Oct. 1879 Ralph Hugh Westropp of Limerick. 

I called on Mr. Richard John Stacpoole of Edenvale, Ennis, 
Co. Clare, Ireland, in July 1897 and was much aided in the 
study of the family history. He has a fine residence and a large 
landed estate. Edenvale has been the residence of this family 
since 1778. 

William, son of George Stacpoole of Annagh, was graduated 
at Trinity College, Dublin, in 1766, and lived in Bath, Eng., in 
1774-75, where his first wife died 2 Nov. 1775 and was buried in 
Bath Abbey "in the center aisle opposite the old Bishop's Mon- 
ument." He was High Sherifif in 1784. 

Mary Stacpoole who married John McMahon had some dis- 
tinguished sons. They were Sir John McMahon, Private Sec- 
retary to the Prince Regent, d. 1817; Sir Thomas McMahon G. 
C. B., Col. of loth Foot, d. i860; and Sir William McMahon, 
Master of the Rolls, d. 1837. 

In letters found at Edenvale, written a century or so ago, 
mention is made of "Frank" Stacpoole, a soldier, as revisiting 
the place. He disappeared and all trace of him is lost in the 
family records. A Francis Stacpoole, connected with the Eden- 
vale family, was first cabin boy in the Merchant Service, then 
Capt. and part owner of a vessel. He was captured with his 
vessel in the time of Napoleon I. and detained as a prisoner on 
parole at Dieppe, France, for five years. He afterwards came 
to New York and, about 1829, married Adaline Bennett, dau. of 
John (b. 16 Sept. 1782; d. 7 May 1822) and Hannah Elenor Ben- 
nett (b. 15 April 1788; d. 12 Feb. 1826). She was born in N. 
Y. 18 Feb. 1812 and died in N. Y. 5 March 1870. Francis 
Stacpoole d. at Center Meriches, N. Y. 16 Sept. 1874, aged about 
95 years. He had a brother Christopher Stacpoole who m. 
Hannah E. Bennett of N. Y. and d. s. p. 11 Sept. 1851, aged 65 
years. Francis Stacpoole was, doubtless, son of William Stac- 
poole of Edenvale (1743-1796), and the family record has been 
imperfectly kept. His children, all born in N. Y., were :

Rev. Andrew Douglass Stacpoole was son of John Massy 
Stacpoole, Capt. in the 44th Regt. of Foot. His mother died 
when he was an infant, and he was brought up by his aunt, Ann 
Carver. He was educated at Winchester, then at New College, 
Oxford, of which he was a Fellow and Tutor, until he was 
appointed to the Writtle vicarage. He was M. A. and J. P. In 
1855 he married Julia Honora, dau. of WilHam Dryden Esq. of 
Hull, Yorkshire ; d. s. p. 1884, aged 79. Buried in Writtle

NOTES ON DIAGRAM V. 

The Philip, born 1656, was alderman of Limerick and is 
buried in St. Mary's Cathedral. Sheriff of Limerick in 1688. 
He married Jane Creagh and died 1715. He mentions in his 
will a mortgage from "Bartholomew Stackpole, Esq."; also a 
sister, Elizabeth Granwell, a cousin, John Stackpole and grand- 
son Alison. He mentions the following children : 

1. James of Cork, merchant. 

2. Philip of Cork, merchant. He died 1720; m. dau. of 
Cornelius and Elizabeth Mahony and named in his will children 
Philip and Mary and the fact that his wife was enciente. 

3. Patrick. (A Patrick Stackpole, merchant of Dublin, 
<1. int. 1748.) 

4. Thomas. 

5. Anne m. John Roche,

44 STACKPOLE FAMILY 

Burke's Hist, of the Commoners says that this PhiHp was son 
of James Stacpole and Christian, dau. of Denis McMahon of 
Clonagh, but this does not agree with the Registered Pedigree 
at DubHn. Burke says further that Anne, youngest dau. of 
Phihp, m. John Roche, Esq., b. 1688. Her distinguished pos- 
terity may be learned from Burke ; also that Philip had three 
brothers who fell in the battle of Aughrim. 

St. Mary's Cathedral and churchyard surrounding it is^ 
doubtless, the burial place of many generations of Stackpoles. 
Nicholas Stackpole of Limerick, merchant, made his will 5 Jan. 
1622 and expressed the desire to be buried in St. George's 
Chapel in St. Mary's Cathedral. He names in his will Nicholas, 
John and James, wife Phillis, and brothers James and John. 

The first two generations of Diagram V. are taken from the 
Registered Pedigree at Dublin. The rest is supported by care- 
ful investigation. It is noticeable that the first Philip of Dia- 
gram V. has a son James of . Nothing more is known 

of him in Ireland. He is mentioned at precisely the time that 
James Stackpole, the emigrant, appeared in America. The emi- 
grant named his first son Philip, doubtless for his father. He 
had also sons named James, John, and William, thus repeating 
the family names we have found most frequent in Limerick. 
These facts suggest a probable connection. The wars and 
religious contentions of that time, by which Ireland was ren- 
dered more perilous than the savage wilds of America, may have 
induced him, as they did so many others, to seek his fortune in 
the new world. It is possible that he spent a short time in Sligo, 
as tradition says, but this will be examined more minutely in the 
following chapter. All evidences point to Limerick as the home 
for many generations of the immediate ancestors of James Stack- 
pole, the emigrant of circa 1680. 




V. 

JAMES STACKPOLE THE EMIGRANT 

In a list of those who paid taxes in Dover, N. H., and vicin- 
ity, in April 1680, under the heading "Cocheco Province Rate," 
is found with others the name of "James Stagpoll," who was 
taxed two shillings and one penny.* This is the earliest men- 
tion of any Stackpole in America. It must have been in the 
same year that he, with many of the inhabitants of Kittery, 
York, and Wells, signed a petition to King Charles II., asking 
for abatement of taxes. f In the inventory of the estate of John 
Bready of Kittery, 9 Oct. 1681 is found this item, "due from 
James Stagpoole 22s." $ 

It is evident from these records that James Stackpole was liv- 
ing within the limits of Dover township before 1680. That town 
then included what is now Dover, Somersworth, Rollinsford, 
Madbury, Lee, Durham, and portions of Newington and Green- 
land. Though taxed with Cocheco settlers, we are not to infer 
that he lived at Cocheco proper, where Dover city now is. He 
was rated with the inhabitants there rather than with those of 
Dover Neck because he lived nearer the former place. The 
eastern limit of Cocheco settlement was the Salmon Falls River, 
or as it is called in the lower part of its course the Newichawan- 
nock. Near the river and a short distance from Quamphegan 
(South Berwick) he probably lived at this time, as it is certain 
that he did some years later. Thomas Hanson and others

known to have lived near Quamphegan are found in the same 
tax-list. Quamphegan was then a parish of Kittery, called some- 
times Berwick, sometimes the "Parish of Unity." Pascataqua 
Settlement was incorporated as the town of Kittery in 1647, the 
first incorporated town of Maine. It extended thirty miles 
along the Pascataqua, Newichawannock and Salmon Falls 
rivers, and included the present towns of Kittery, Eliot, South 
Berwick, Berwick, and North Berwick. 

Dr. Alonzo Quint is responsible for the statement that James 
Stackpole "was born 1653, had a grant 1694, died 23 Aug. 
1733-"* I know not on what authority this statement is made. 
Aug. 23, 1732, James Stacpole of Dover, N. H., aged eighty 
years, deposed concerning one Edward Toogood, that "sundry 
years before Salmon Falls was destroyed by the Indians," said 
Toogood lived there, etc. This fixes the date of his birth, 1652, 
and shows that he was well acquainted with Salmon Falls sundry 
years before 1689.! The date of his death is probably a typo- 
graphical error, as it can be shown that he died in 1736. The 
grant of land referred to was as follows : — 

"April ye II, 1694. By the committee chosen by the freeholders of ye 
town of Dover for granting land, given and granted unto James Stag- 
pole his heirs and assigns forever, fifty acres of land above Indigo Hill 
near Salmon Falls River, not intrenching upon any former grant. 

The above grant voted and confirmed in generall. 

Will Furber, clerk of 3d Com. 

Town meeting the i6th day of April 1694 

Jno. Tuttle, Town Clerk." 

It is quite certain that he never lived on this grant. The 
town records of Kittery declare that, 16 July 1702, there were 
lotted and laid out to James Stagpole Senr. twenty acres of land, 
part of a grant made in 1694 to Gilbert Warren, the said Stag- 
pole having evidently acquired right to the land. Four acres of 
it were on the north side of the Great Works River ; the rest on 
the south side, extending to the York line, adjoining Warren's 
land. This land passed into the possession of James Stackpole 
Jr. and was willed by him to his brother John in 1706. May 20, 
1728, John Stackpole sold it to Gilbert Warren.

JAMES STACKPOLE THE EMIGRANT 47 

The Court of Sessions at York, Me., 4 July 1693, made the 
following record, "Lycence is Granted to James Stagpole of 
barwick to sell by retaile beere. Cyder, rum, provision and 
lodging, he giving ten pounds bond to their Maties to observe 
the laws in that case provided."* The license was renewed an- 
nually up to 1698, and his place was called a "publick house of 
entertainment," known in later phraseology as a tavern or hotel. 
A supply of ardent spirits at such places was in those times the 
rule without exception. It is true that this, as usual, led to some 
disorders, and James Stackpole was complained of, and indeed 
once fined twenty shillings and admonished ; yet his license was 
at the same time renewed. Perhaps the admonition led him to 
sell out in 1699 and move back to the New Hampshire side of the 
river. "James Stackpole Senr." bought land in Berwick, 2 Nov. 
1696, for fifteen pounds and sold the same, 22 Nov. 1699, to 
"John Wade Minstr." The deed is from "James StackpoU of 
Dover in New Hampshier, husbandman." The land was three 
and one-fourth acres, "near the meeting house," bounded on the 
southeast by the way going from the Great Work to the River, 
northwest by the burying place, "with all the housing, trees, 
fences and Privileges pertaining thereto. "f The burying place 
still is used and enables us to designate the spot where he lived 
in Berwick. It is on the hill just south of Great Works River. 
A church stood close to the cemetery, on the east side, and John 
Wade was its first minister. James Stackpole lived a short dis- 
tance east of the church. 

He married, quite certainly before 1680, Margaret, daughter 
of James and Margaret Warren of the parish of Berwick. James 
Warren, as will be shown a little later, came from Berwick, Scot- 
land, and his wife was a native of Ireland. He settled in Ber- 
wick, Me., soon after 1650. In a deed, dated 15 July 1656, he 
is mentioned as owner of a lot of land bordering on the river, at 
Great Works. There was lotted and laid out to James Warren, 
15 July 1656, by Humphrey Chadbourne, land on the south side 
of John Taylor's lot, "by the water side."$ He may have been 
one of those prisoners taken at the battle of Dunbar, in 165 1,

and sent by Cromwell to Boston. Many of them were sent 
down to Maine and settled in the upper part of York, which is 
still known as "Scotland." The saw and grist mills at Great 
Works led many of these settlers to pass from York to the par- 
ish of Unity, and hence it is said to have been called Berwick 
from the Scotch home of some of its early inhabitants, though 
some assign a different origin to the name. 

James and Margaret Warren had five children : — 

1. Gilbert b. in 1656, as shown by a deposition. He made 
his will 2 April 1728 (Probated 17 April 1733) and mentioned his 
wife Sarah and daughters Jane Stockbridge, Margaret Hear!, 
and son-in-law John Thompson. 

2. Margaret, married James Stackpole. 

3. Jane (?) James Warren's will mentions a granddaughter, 
Jane Grant. This implies a third daughter. In the Dover Hist. 
Coll. is recorded a marriage, by the Rev. John Pike, of William 
Grant to Jane Warren, 4 Aug. 1690. This is probably the 
daughter of James Warren. The name of Grizel, her sister, is 
found more than once among later members of the Grant family 
of Kittery. 

4. James Jr. m. Mary . Became one of the Select- 
men of Kittery. The town records mention the following chil- 
<iren, Mary b. 23 Feb. 1692 ; Margaret b. 5 Nov. 1694 ; James b. 
■8 June 1698; Rachel b. 26 Aug. 1700, d. 13 Sept. 1703; Gilbert 
b. 30 April 1703; John b. 16 Dec, 1705. 

5. Grizel, whose story has often been told, b. 6 March 1662; 
m. Richard Otis. His first wife was Rose, dau. of Anthony 
Stoughton, and probably came with him from England. He is 
mentioned in the Boston Records 28 May 1655. The next year 
he was taxed at Dover, N. H., where he lived as a blacksmith. 
His second wife was Shuah, widow of James Heard. His third 
wife was Grizel Warren. He and their daughter, Hannah Otis, 
were killed by the- Indians in the Dover massacre, the morning 
of 28 June 1689, the latter having her head dashed against the 
chamber stairs. Twenty-two were killed and twenty-nine were 
carried as captives to Canada, among the latter Grizel (Warren) 
Otis and her babe, Margaret, three months old. They were 
instructed by French priests and baptized in the Roman Catholic 
Church, receiving new names in baptism. The Canadian record 
is as follows : — 



JAMES STACKPOLE THE EMIGRANT 49 

"Mary Madeleine Warren, daughter of James of Berwick, 
Scotland, and Margaret (an Irishwoman,) born 6 March 1662, 
in New England, taken in War 18 (28) June 1689; baptized 9 
May 1693; married ist Richard Theys (Otis); 2d 15 Oct. 1693 
Philip Robitaile, in Montreal, in the service of M. de Maricour.'' 

Robitaile was son of Jean and Martine (Carmont) Robitaile, 
from Biencourt, Province d'Artois, France. They had five 
children: Phillipe bap. 5 Feb. 1695; George bap. 19 April 1701, 
d. 1703; Jacques bap. 29 Jan. 1697; Jean bap. 10 March 1699; 
Marguerite bap. 2 April 1703, m. 13 April 1722 Jean Baptiste 
Biron of Montreal."' 

Grizel lived to the age of 89 years and was buried 27 Oct. 
1750. Her daughter was baptized as Christine, and m. 14 June 
1707, a Frenchman whose surname was Le Beau and whose first 
name resembled, in English, Sharrington, a name that has been 
handed down among her descendants in the Baker and Stack- 
pole families. After the death of her husband, 26 Feb. 1713, she 
was not permitted to have her children who were brought up in 
a convent. She returned to her friends in Dover, N. H., and 
married Capt. Thomas Baker of Northampton, Mass., by whom 
she had seven children. They moved to Dover about 1734, 
where she died 23 Feb. 1773, having lived "a pattern of industry, 
prudence and economy." Her granddaughter, Lucy Baker, 
married Joshua Stackpole of Somersworth, N. H., and was the 
mother of Lieut. Samuel Stackpole of the Revolutionary Army. 

James Warren died in 1702. His will made Dec. 9, 1700, 
contains the following items : 

I doe give unto my Daughter Margaret Stagpoal five shillings. 
I doe give unto my Granson James Stagpoal one heifer and one ewe 
and a young sow. 

The foregoing will was probated 24 Dec. 1702; recorded 14 
Jan. 1702-3. Inventory returned 15 Dec. 1702, at £228:5:4 by 
Peter Grant and William Goodwin appraisers. 

The will of Margaret Warren, made Dec. 13, 1712, has this 
item: 

I give and bequeath unto my Daughter Margret Stackpole my Great 
Brass Kittle and two Blankits and one Coverlid and Ten yardes of 
Woling Cloath and my Greate Wooden Platter and one pare of sheets 
and all my wareing Cloath. 

*See N. E. Hist, and Gen. Reg. 1851 and 1893. 



50 STACKPOLE FAMILY 

James Stackpole, 20 May 1710, received a deed of land in 
Dover, N. H., now Rollinsford, from Thomas Austin, only son 
of Joseph Austin, who conveyed to him "for twenty pounds of 
current money all that tract of land granted to said Joseph Aus- 
tin in 1656," "lying in ye range of lots between St. Alban's Cove 
and Quamphegan,'' bounded south-east by the Newichawannock 
river, north-east by Henry Tibbetts' hundred acre lot, north- 
west by Ralph Twombly's hundred acres and Thomas Hanson's 
hundred acres and south-west by a highway between this lot and 
Thomas Kenne's (Canney) hundred acre lot. The lot purchased 
contained one hundred acres of rich land. A brook flows 
through it which is still called Stackpole's Brook and was so 
called in a writing 9 May 1709, when a road was laid out, cross- 
ing a "little creek on the south side of James Stackpole's 
house," from St. Alban's Cove to Quamphegan. It now 
empties into the late Samuel Hale's artificial pond. The old 
Stackpole house stood where now is Hale's garden, a little north 
of the pond. Right in front of it was "Stackpole's Landing," 
mentioned in early documents, where sloops of a hundred tons 
burden or so might land their merchandise at high water. From 
his doorway James Stackpole looked across and down the New- 
ichawannock to where the Great Works River empties therein. 
The view is one of great natural beauty. On the opposite shore 
and hill-top he could see the home of James Warren and the 
house where himself lived during his sojourn in Maine, as well 
as the first saw and grist mills set up in New England, in 1634. 

There is evidence that the Austins never lived on this grant 
of land received in 1656. Their home was in another part of 
Dover. It is probable that James Stackpole settled down here 
before 1680 by right of squatter sovereignty, that he remained 
here till the time of the Indian raids, that began in 1689, and then 
moved over into Berwick for safety, where he staid till 1699. 
He then returned to his old habitation, where he had some claim 
to the lot by reason of "betterments" made. Yet to satisfy the 
claim of Austin acquired by original grant he paid, in 17 10, twenty 
pounds for one hundred acres of land and took an undisputed 
deed of the same. That the price paid was only a nominal one 
is shown by the fact that only four years later, Nov. 30, 1714, 
he sold "forty acres of upland" from this lot to William Frost 
for one hundred and twenty pounds. 



JAMES STACKPOLE THE EMIGRANT 5 1 

Besides the persons named above in the deed James Stack- 
pole had for neighbors, next south, Thomas Canney and later 
Henry Hobbs a shipbuilder, and Thomas Wallingford. Then 
came Sylvanus Nock and the Sligo Garrison House on the east 
side of the road. Next were the houses of Lieut. Hatevil Nutter 
and Benjamin Weymouth, which brings us to Stiles's at St. 
Albans Cove. This region has long been and is still called 
"Sligo." Some assert that this name arose from the fact that 
James Stackpole came from Sligo, Ireland. In North's History 
of Augusta (p. 914) there is an account of the family of James 
Stackpole of Waterville, evidently furnished by the James Stack- 
pole who graduated at Bowdoin College in 1819. He says that 
his "immigrant ancestor was James Stackpole of Sligo, Ireland^ 
who came over in 1680." He simply repeats an old tradition. 
The place is called Sligo in very early deeds. Miss Mary P. 
Thompson, in her Landmarks of Ancient Dover, traces the name 
to Sligo, birthplace of the Earl of Bellomont, who was appointed 
Governor of N. H. in 1699 and was ordered to build such forts 
at Pascataqua and elsewhere as were needed for security. 
Another tradition says James Stackpole came from Cork, Ire- 
land. From several sources I have heard the old saw about 
"three brothers" who came over from England. Tradition is 
valuable, but it can not always be trusted. Sligo, Ireland, was 
utterly burned and its inhabitants barbarously massacred in 
1653, and in Jan. 1655 proposals were made to repeople the town 
and lands thereabouts with emigrants from New England. A 
few actually returned. It is improbable, then, that James Stack- 
pole came from Sligo to New England a few years later. I 
visited Sligo, Ireland, in 1897, and made inquiries of the Town 
Clerk and oldest inhabitants. There are no records of any 
Stackpole in that place, and they said the name was utterly 
unknown there. 

The next mention of James Stackpole is found in a petition 
dated 25 April 1715. The petition with names of petitioners was 
evidently written by an Irishman. "The Inhabitanes that are 
Nerer ye New Meten house than ye old Cocheco Pint" ask to 
be assigned to the new place of worship. Among the petitioners 
are "fileon Stagpool" and "Jeames Stagpool." The first is 
presumably Philip, son of James. A footnote to the petition, as 
given in N. H. State Papers, explains that the petitioners were 



52 STACKPOLE FAMILY 

"nearer ye new Meeting house at Cocheco than the old on Dover 
Neck." It seems that after the destruction of the old church at 
Cocheco and the breaking up of that settlement by the Indian 
massacre of 1689 the inhabitants of Dover were taxed for the 
maintenance of worship at Dover Neck, near Hilton's Point ; but 
when the new church was erected at Cocheco in 1713 the settlers 
in "Sligo" wished to return to their first love. At least they 
preferred to be taxed there, though it is probable that they often 
found it more convenient to ford the "Sluiceway" and attend 
church at the Great Works Settlement. 

James and Philip Stackpole, 25 April 1729, sign a petition for 
a new Parish in the north-east part of Dover. The petition was 
granted and Somersworth was made a Parish, 19 Dec. 1730. It 
was incorporated as a town 22 April 1754. Rev. James Pike 
was first pastor of this church. He died here 19 March 1792, 
after a pastorate of 65 years. The church records were burned 
with the parsonage in 1812, a sad loss to genealogists. 

James Stackpole died in 1736, as shown by the Inventory 
of his estate, made by Nathaniel Gerkins and Thomas Walling- 
ford, under date of 12 Aug. 1736. A full copy is here appended. 
It is an interesting document and shows how the fore-fathers 
lived.

1 7 12, to her daughter, Margaret Stackpole. It hung on a crane 
over a wood fire and was often filled with Irish potatoes. The 
"Poridge pott" served for cooking Indian meal. The salmon 
that were so abundant in the river before his door sputtered in 
the "Frying Pann." His house was certainly not palatial, being 
valued at about $25. It was, doubtless, a primitive log-cabin, 
pretty well decayed at the time of his death. The wind whistling 
through it in the cold winters made a "warming Pann" service- 
able. He had disposed, to his sons, of nearly all his valuable land,, 
retaining only about three acres for a garden. Here with his 
cow and hog, and his sons Philip, William and Samuel living 
within sight and call he passed a peaceful and easy old age. In 
the militia, to which every able-bodied man belonged, he with 
all his sons did military service, and they were often called out to 
defend life and property, for the Indians had special hatred 
toward Dover and Berwick. He had no opportunity, like his 
ancestors under William the Conqueror and Strongbow, to seize 
the castles and cultivated estates of the conquered and so make 
himself and family rich. He conquered a hundred acres of 
wooded wilderness by the hard labor of a husbandman, saw his 
children comfortably settled in similar employments, and lived 
to behold his great-grandchildren. The record indicates a. 
courageous, honest, industrious and prosperous private citizen. 

He was buried on a hill-top just back of his house. Here 
sleep many of the first four generations of American Stackpoles. 
Traces of rude monuments of rough granite as headstones ma}*" 
still be seen, crumbled and disfigured by time. Trees and 
bushes have grown up in abundance about their graves. The 
site is a beautiful one and deserves to be protected and honored. 
The farm with this private burial-ground has passed into the 
hands of strangers. Some fitting memorial should mark and 
protect these graves. 

John Stackpole of Biddeford was administrator of his father's 
estate and, 4 June 1737, sold to Thomas Wallingford, for one 
hundred and twenty pounds, the three acres above mentioned, 
reserving to himself, for the use of his mother Margaret, the 
house so long as she might live. It is not known when she died. 



VI. 

FAMILY OF JAMES STACKPOLE THE EMIGRANT 

From Wills, Deeds, and other documents are gathered the 
names of the children of James and Margaret (Warren) Stack- 
pole, here arranged in the probable order of their birth ; James 
Jr., Philip, John, William, Margaret, and Samuel. An ''Onar 
Stackpole,'' a misspelling for Honor, is found on the Church 
Records of South Berwick, Me., baptized and received by cove- 
nant 20 May 1 716. She may have been another daughter of the 
emigrant, or perhaps she was the wife of William. 

I. Of James Jr. nothing more can be learned than that he 
received a grant of fifty acres of land from the town of Kittery, 
10 May 1703, and that he made his Will in 1706. The fact that 
he wills all his property to his father and brothers indicates that 
he had no family. His Will is here given in full, since it reveals 
something of family history. He was a soldier. The guns and 
steel traps indicate a huntsman and trapper. Scalps and furs 
found a ready market in those days. He signs his initials in 
the scrawling hand of a man weak with wounds or with sickness, 
and the writer of the Will supplies his full name. He lived at 
South Berwick, and the indications are that he had been brought 
up in the family of his maternal grandfather. 

In the name of God Amen, I James Stagpole Junr of Barwick in her 
Majts Province of the Masachusets Bay in New England (planter) being

II. Samuel is not mentioned in his brother's Will. He was 
baptized and received by covenant in the church at South Ber- 
wick, Me., 15 Oct. 1721. He died in 1758 intestate. As his 
property was divided among his brothers and sister, it is evident 
that he also left no family. Philip, his brother, was made admin- 
istrator 22 Feb. 1758. James Hobbs and Daniel Goodwin made 
the fnventory of his estate consisting of thirty acres of land, 
buildings, a yoke of cattle, a cow, a heifer and household stuff, — 



56 STACKPOLE FAMILY 

all amounting to £2681 : sy, doubtless in depreciated currency. 
The land was part of the fifty acres, deeded to him by his father, 
20 April 1734, "reserving unto myself the house wherein I live 
and ye land whereon it stands, to extend from ye house towards 
Capt. Wallingford's house by the river, and ye little field before 
my Dore, adjoining to Thomas Hobbs' land, being in all about 
two or three acres." Samuel was to pay to his father and 
mother one half of the profits during their lives. He sold a 
portion of this to his nephew, Joshua Stackpole, 20 April 1743, 
and ten acres to some one else in 1740. The rest was divided 
at his death between his brothers John, William and Philip, and 
his sister Margaret Young. William bought the claim of John. 
In 1760 the farm and dwelling house, left by Samuel, were owned 
by William, son of Philip Stackpole. 

III. William is little known. He was a young man in 1706, 
living, as we have seen, in 1758. There is no record of children. 

IV. Margaret, the only daughter known, married, as shown 
by Kittery Records, 7 Jan. 1707-8, Jonathan Young* of York, 
Me. They were both living as late as 1758, as a legal document 
shows. 

V. Philip Stackpole is first mentioned in the will of his 
brother James, in 1706. The Church Records of South Berwick 
say that his wife Mercy was received by profession 15 March 
1729. His will mentions his wife Martha. This may have been 
a second wife, or it may have been a clerical error. Several 
granddaughters were named Mercy, but the name Martha is 
not found among his descendants. A Mrs. Stackpole died in 
Dover 24 Sept. 1792, aged loi yrs. This was, doubtless, the 
wife of Philip. 

*Rowland Young Senr. lived on. the "south side of York River" in 
1652, said to have been of Scotch ancestry. In 1685 he willed all his 
property to his vv'ife Joanna. In 1698 she mentioned in her Will children 
Rowland, Jr., Job, Mary Moulton, and Lydia Haines. Rowland, Jr., 
names in his Will, 1719, his wife Susannah, and children Joseph, Benajah, 
Matthew, Jonathan, Mary, Susanna, Elizabeth, Sarah, and Mercy. 
Joseph, oldest son of Rowland Young. Jr., names in his Will, 1734, his 
wife Abigail, Grandson Joseph, granddaughter Abigail, and four daugh-

FAMILY OF JAMES STACKPOLE THE EMIGRANT 57 

He lived with his Father and, 17 Nov. 1732, bought of him 
for thirty pounds sixteen acres of land, being the northeast 
corner of his farm, bounded "on ye northeastern side by Thomas 
Thibbets land, on ye southeast by the Nechowannock River and 
on ye other parts by my own land" — "excepting an old apple 
tree." Here he built a house, which in 1832 was removed by 
his grandson, Ebenezer Stackpole, to St. Alban's Cove, was 
remodeled and is still standing. The timbers were of hewn oak. 

July 2 1734, he was chosen a member of the first School 
Board of Somersworth, N. H., and in 1754 he was elected to take 
an Inventory of the Parish and as one of the Overseers of the 
poor. He died in 1761. His Will, in which he conveys most 
of his estate to his son Philip, is here given.

VII. 

LIEUT. JOHN STACKPOLE OF BIDDEFORD AND 

FAMILY 

Lieut. John Stackpole, for by this title he was usually known 
to distinguish him from his son Deacon John, was the third son 
of James and Margaret (Warren) Stackpole and must have been 
born about or soon after 1680, since he had a son born in 1708. 
He married Elizabeth, daughter of Andrew Brown* of York, 
Me. 

*Her grandfather, Arthur Brown, a merchant, came to America 
from London in 1643. His son, Andrew, bought land at Black Point, 
Scarborough, 29 Sept. 1651. The Indian attacks upon the settlement 
drove him to York in 1699, where he lived till 1717. He then moved to 
Winter Harbor, Biddeford, near the mouth of the Saco River, with his 
son-in-law, John Stackpole. Two years later he settled in Kennebunk- 
port, or as it was then called Arundel, and died there soon after. His 
children were: 

I. Alison Brown m. Hannah, dau. of Humphrey Scamman of Bidde- 
ford and died in 1728, leaving a son Andrew and daughter Elizabeth. He 
was Capt. of Militia and the first Representative of Kennebunkport to 
the General Court of Mass. He was the richest man in the town, hav- 
ing property at his death valued at about $6000. (1241:7:0). In his 
Will, made 9 March 1728, he bequeathed to his sister, Elizabeth Stack- 
pole and to each of her children "four pounds a Piece." The children 
are not named. 

II. Andrew Brown, Jr., m. the widow of Pendleton Fletcher; d. 4 
July 1723, aged 65 years. Their only child, Andrew, died unm. 14 March 
1722. 

III. Lieut. Matthew Brown d. s. p. before 1734. 

IV. Elizabeth Brown m. John Stackpole. 
V. Mary Brown m. Carr. 

VI. Katherine Brown m. Joshua Lassell. 

See Maine Wills, Folsom's Hist, of Biddeford, and the Hist, of 
Kennebunkport.

STACKPOLE FAMILY 



John Stackpole lived a dozen years in York, receiving at 
least three grants of land there. He moved to Biddeford in 1717 
or earlier and purchased several parcels of land near Cow Cove 
and the mouth of the Saco, having at one time over two hundred 
acres of land. Jan. 4, 1728, he and others had a grant from 
Arundel of 100 acres apiece on the "Saco Road," a new road to 
be laid out running from Wells through Arundel to Winter 
Harbor. This has led Bradbury in his Hist, of Kennebunkport 
to infer and to state that John Stackpole moved to Kennebunk- 
port, and other historians have followed Bradbury in the asser- 
tion. There is no evidence of this removal, and there is much 
evidence to the contrary. 

John Stackpole was chosen Constable of Biddeford in 171 7. 
The last meeting of the inhabitants on both sides of the river 
under the old name of Saco was held at his house, 31 March 
1717, and John was chosen Moderator. His house stood on the 
spot where not long ago lived Ralph E. Jordan, Esq., on the 
Pool road, near an old cemetery. His house was a garrison for 
defence against the Indians. A petition to the General Court, 
dated 9 Nov. 1723, is signed by Ebenezer Hill, John Stackpole 
and Nathaniel Tarbox. They ask for protection against the 
Indians, and say that Stackpole's "Garrison is upon the road 
and is a guard and security to the meeting house." 

The following petition will be of interest, at least to all his 
descendants : 

"To the Honi'ie William Dummer Esq. Lieut-Gov. and Commander 
in Chief, and to the Hon^i<^ House of Representatives in Gcn^ Court 
assembled, Boston Nov. 1727. 

The Petition of John Stagpole Humbly Showeth That your Peti- 
tioner on the 22d of Jan'y 1724-5 did by order of Col" Thomas West- 
brook, take the Command of Tv/enty-one men at Biddeford and marcht 
up Saco River in pursuit of the Enemy, which Continued for nine days, 
and soon after his return, on the first day of february following y^ Pef 
did by order of said Col° Westbrook march as Pilot from Richmond to 
Penobscot Town with Capt Joseph Heath, all which may sut^ciently 
appear by a Journal now in the Secretary's office, signed by Col" West- 
brook, and for which service your Pef" has never rec'd any pay. 

Therefore your Pef humbly prays your Hon^ consideration of the 
Premises and make him such allowance for the above s'd service as in 
your great Wisdoms shall seem meet and your Pef as in duty bound 
will ever pray. 

John Stackpole." 



LIEUT. JOHN STACKPOLE OF BIDDEFORD AND FAMILY 65 

It was ordered that the sum of eight pounds be paid him out 
of the Publick Treasury. 

On this expedition with Heath a village of the Tarratines 
near Bangor was burned in May, 1725. It consisted of fifty 
houses. The Tarratines had fled.* 

The reason why John did not receive his pay sooner appears 
in Folsom's Hist, of Biddeford. It must have been after July 
1725 when John Stackpole was surprised by the Indians on the 
beach and " ran into the pool and attempted to wade across ; but 
one of the party, said to have been the noted Wahwa, who was 
well known to Stackpole, pursued him crying out, 'Boon quar- 
ter, John, boon quarter'; meaning that he would spare his life." 
John surrendered and was taken to Canada, spending a winter 
on the way at the foot of the White Mountains. He returned 
after an absence of nineteen months, probably released on 
exchange after the treaty of peace. 

Some traditions concerning this capture have floated down in 
different branches of the family. Some have it that there was 
a John Stackpole of Biddeford, grandson of Lieut. John, born 
in 1739, who was captured by the Indians. He was six feet 
seven inches tall and a wonderful athlete. One account says 
that he and a certain Indian hunted to get game for the chief. 
His Indian companion often took the greater part of John's 
game away from him, claiming it as his own. John stood this 
for quite a while but finally told the chief how the case stood. 
Next day the tribe was called together, John and the Indian in 
the midst. John did not know what was in store for him, per- 
haps torture. Two baskets of corn were brought and set side 
by side. John and the Indian were told to strip naked for a 
wrestling match, the best man to have the corn. It was the 
toughest contest John ever had, for the Indian was a powerful 
man and greased for the occasion, but John threw him the most 
times and had no trouble afterward with his game. 

Another account says that John at first feigned inability to 
endure hardship, but one day betrayed his strength in a wrest- 
ling contest, after which they said, "Strong man John, must tote 
me pigback." This account says that he made his escape upon 
skates, the Indians vainly attempting to follow him on snow- 
shoes. 

*See Williamson's Hist, of Maine Vol. IL p. 143. 



66 STACKPOLE FAMILY 

Stackpole Brook in Buxton is said to have been named for 
Lieut. John Stackpole, who was one of the chainmen when Bux- 
ton was first run out in 1733. 

In 1730 was chosen "John Stagickpoell messenger for to 
aggree and hier a Sculmaster." The orthography of the Town 
Clerk of that time shows that a school was much needed. 

He contributed seven pounds toward the building of the first 
Congregational church in Biddeford. There had been two 
church edifices before, but the first Congregational church was 
organized about 1729. John was one of the Committee who 
called the Rev. Samuel Willard to be pastor of that church. An 
original deed of land, bought by John Stackpole of Samuel Cole 
in 1732, in the hand-writing of Rev. Mr. Willard and witnessed 
by him and Abigail Willard, is in the possession of Miss Julia 
Stackpole of Waterville. 

John was one of the Selectmen in 1729, '30, '37-9, and '40. 
He was living as late as 1767. His wife signed a deed in 1759. 

We find mention of three children. Tradition tells about a 
son called "Roaring Ralph/' who killed an Indian with his 
fist. Another son, Andrew, was a soldier in the expedition 
against Cape Breton in 1745. He married 22 Nov. 1743, Mary, 
dau. of John and Elizabeth Davis. He died intestate in 1766, 
leaving two daughters; Margaret b. 9 Feb. 1748 m. in 1765 
Thomas Drinkwater of North Yarmouth, Me. (having children 
Joseph, Sarah, and Mary); and Mary, baptized 17 May 1751, 
who m. 21 Jan. 1768 Joel Sawyer of Pepperellborough (Saco). 
Mary, the widow of Andrew Stackpole, married 4 Sept. 1768 
Stephen Jones of Pepperellborough. 

Of Deacon John Stackpole, son of Lieut. John, more is 
known. He was born in 1708 and married 30 Nov. 1731 
Bethiah Young of York. Was chosen Deacon in 1754, of the 
Congregational Church in Biddeford, Selectman in 1746, '50 and 
'51, He, too, was Lieut, of Militia, appointed by Gov. William 
Shirley in 1755, "for killing and captivating the Indian enemy," 
as the Commission, still preserved, reads. He had, in 1755, 
command of soldiers enlisted for five months, who scouted 
from New Boston (Gray) to P'ort Shirley at Frankfort (Dres- 
den). His Journal, kept during that time, is preserved in the 
Mass. archives. A writer in the New England Register has 
attributed it to the Deacon's father. The hand-writing is differ-

ent and, moreover, Lieut. John Stackpole would, in 1755, be 
over seventy years of age, too old for such military service as is 
described.

DESCENDANTS OF WILLIAM STACKPOLE OF 

BOSTON 

William Stackpole (James'', Phillip-, James) son of James 
and Elizabeth (Pierce) Stackpole, was born 19 Oct. 1746 in Som- 
ersworth, N. H. He went with his brother James to Sebascod- 
egan, or Great Island, Harpswell, Me. about 1766; thence to 
Thomaston, Me. about 1773. May 23, 1871, Ebenezer Tooth- 
aker of Harpswell sold to William Stackpole for eighty pounds 
land on Sebascodegan Island, lot number 2 in first division, on 
New Meadows River. Oct. 2 1780 he sold this land to Joshua 
Purington for one hundred and twenty pounds. The deed is 
dated at Boston, Mass., and is signed by William and Ann 
Stackpole. Witnessed by Samviel Cooper and by Samuel L. 
Parker. After going to Thomaston James and William being 
carpenters got out the frame of a house, and William went with 
it to Boston and remained there. He was a resident of Ward 9 
Boston, Dec. 19 1776, for his name then appears in the Public 
Records among the men from whom a draught was made for 
reenforcement of the Continental Army. The same Records 
show that he was a retailer on King St., now State St., 28 Aug. 
1781. He was "licensed to sell tea" 12 Dec. 1781. In 1790 his 
household consisted of four whites over sixteen years of age, 
one under that age, and eight free white females, as the Records 
say. At this time he lived in what was long known as the 
"Stackpole House," and was a wealthy wholesale wine-mer- 
chant. This house was built in 1729 and was occupied many 
}cars before it took its name by the Waldos, Tyngs, and 
Apthorps. It was midway between Milk and Water Sts., a large

brick house with ample dooryard and garden in front. " For 
many years after the Stackpole House ceased to be a genteel pri- 
vate residence it was used as a fashionable restaurant, where the 
gay and lively Bostonians found good cooking, and where they 
used to assemble and unbend in festive cheer." After the death 
of Mr. Stackpole it was occupied by his son-in-law, Mr. Welch, 
whose son, Charles A. Welch, Esq., sold the property to the U. 
S. Government. The present Boston Post Office stands on the 
site of the Stackpole House. 

William Stackpole and Mrs. Ann (Jackson) Parker of Boston 
were married by the Rev. Samuel Stillman 3 Oct. 1776. He

61. They had five children.

from France, who came to America about 1787. They lived in 
Boston till the death of Mr. Holker, after which she moved to

1857. Her only child, Anna Maria Adelaide Holker. born 22 
Sept. 1816, married Hugh Mortimer Nelson of Virginia, b. 20 
Oct. 181 1 and d. 6 Aug. 1862. He was a Colonel in the Confed- 
erate Arm}' and a man of excellent character. Mrs. Nelson died

died in Lowell, Mass. 4 Oct. 1859. She has been described as a 
"woman of sweet and amiable temper with an entire absence 
from her character of envy, hatred and uncharitableness. Her 
consistently Christian life and deportment warmly attached to her

studied law, and practiced at Concord, Portsmouth, Newburyport,

removed to Boston and was chosen to represent Essex Co. Mass. 
in the loth and nth Congresses, serving from 9 Dec. 1807 to 3 
March 181 1. His father, Samuel Livermore, was Representative 
in N. H. Legislature 1789-93 ; U. S. Senator 1793-1801, and Pres-

III. William Stackpole b. 31 Dec. 1779 in Boston, Mass. 
Graduated at Harvard in 1797. A.M. Lawyer, m. 13 Jan. 
1803 Mrs. Nancy (Lewis) Hodgdon, dau. of Joseph and Molly 
Lewis of Dedham, Mass., who was born 12 Sept. 1774. (Her 
first husband was Alexander Hodgdon, Esq., of Boston, whom 
she married 6 Oct. 1793. He died in Dedham 12 Aug. 1797, 
aged 56 years.) They went to Louisville, Ky., and both died 
there of fever about 11 Oct. 1822. They had six children. 

1. William Ames Stackpole, died in New Orleans, La., 
when a young man. Unm. 

2. Grace Hanfield Gurley Stackpole m. George Atkin- 
son of London, England, in 1842 and resided there. She died in 
October 1872, having survived her husband. They had no 
children. 

3. Joseph Lewis Stackpole b. 28 Dec. 1808. Graduated 
at Harvard in 1824 and at the Law School in 1828. He married 
2 March 1837 Susan Margaret Benjamin of Boston, Mass. He 
was the "nearest and dearest friend" of John Lothrop Motley, 
the historian, who married a sister of Joseph Lewis Stackpole's 
wife, "thus joining two young men already like brothers in their 
mutual afifections." Motley writes of him long years after his 
death as "our ever lamented friend Stackpole." Oliver W^endell 
Holmes, in his Memoir of Motley says that Motley and Stackpole 
met while traveling in Europe. Stackpole was eight years older 
than Motley, "always cool and good-natured. Mr. Stackpole 
was a man of great intelligence, of remarkable personal attrac- 
tions and amiable character." Pres. Eliot of Harvard related to 
Mr. Markham W. Stackpole that when he was traveling in Egypt 
he saw Joseph Lewis Stackpole's name carved at some place up 
the Nile. He was killed in a railroad accident 20 July 1847. ^^ 
the Boston Daily Advertiser of July 23, 1847 appeared the follow- 
ing obituary, written by Hon. Charles Sumner. 

"The sudden death of Mr. Stackpole has filled a large circU 
of friends with poignant grief. 

"He was a graduate of Harvard University in the class of 
1824 and afterwards studied law. His studies were careful and 
thorough. His attainments were increased by travel in Europe. 
As a member of the Ex. Com. on Modern Languages at the 
University he made his excellent knowledge, especially of

French, useful to the community. Had his professional studies 
been continued, there is reason to believe that in some 
departments he would have contributed in no humble measure 
to the true fame of his country. An article in the American 
Jurist entitled 'Customs and Origin of Customary Law,' written 
by Mr. S. while still very young, drew the attention of learned 
men in Europe as much, perhaps, as was ever done by any paper 
of mere jurisprudence from our country. It was the subject of 
comment by the late Prof. Park at King's College in one of his 
public lectures, who read extracts from it to his classes, and it 
was reproduced in one of the English Law Journals. This was 
at the time when American productions found little favor from 
the mother country. This article will be read with interest by 
students of Jurisprudence and History, while it must always pos- 
sess peculiar attractions as the early offering of ingenuous youth 
to a stern profession ardently espoused. Perhaps nothing 
ever appeared in our country from one equally young evincing 
a finer judicial spirit. 

"Mr. Stackpole has been removed from the strongest family 
ties, from a large cluster of friends, from enjoyments richly 
spread by competence and taste, and from opportunities of use- 
fulness which were before him in ample fields, while his sun of 
life was still high and glowing in the heavens. He has passed 
away as a shadow. Let us clasp and hold fast the memory of 
his virtues." 

His wife survived him half a century, dying 24 April 1896. 
They had three sons. 

A. Joseph Lewis Stackpole b. 20 March 1838. Grad- 
uated at Harvard University in 1857 and at the Law School in 
1859. Admitted to Suffolk bar 3 Sept. i860. In the war of the 
Rebellion he was commissioned Capt. in the 24th Mass. Regt. 2 
Sept. 1861 ; Major and Judge Advocate General 10 July 1863 ; 
Brevet Lieut.-Col. 13 March 1865, and resigned 20 April 1865. 
Gen. Benj. F. Butler, in his Autobiography, says of him on tak- 
ing command of the Department, "Major J. L. Stackpole, the 
Judge Advocate General of the Department of Virginia and 
North Carolina * * * I found one of the most competent 
officers that I have ever seen filling that position. He was faith- 
ful, diligent and a good lawyer, and he retained his position dur-

ing my command. He now pursues his profession in the city of 
Boston with the esteem of all who know him." (p. 697.) 

He early gave evidence of his ability as a lawyer. March 15 
1861, Motley writes to his mother thus, "I hear that Lewis 
Stackpole is one of the most rising young lawyers of the day, 
that he is very popular everywhere, thought to have great talents 
for his profession, great industry, and that he is sure to succeed. 
You may well suppose with how much delight we hear such ac- 
counts of him." (Correspondence Vol. I. p. 364.) He was first 
Assistant City Solicitor of Boston from 1870 to 1876, and U. S. 
General Appraiser from Aug. to Dec. 1890. He has appeared 
in the North American Review for Nov. 1865, as the author of 
"Military Law," and in the American Law Review as the author 
of "Rogers vs. Attorney-General," Oct. 1865; '"Law and 
Romance," April 1867; "Book about Lawyers," Oct. 1867; 
"Lord Plunkett, " April 1868; "Campbell's Lives of Lyndhurst

IV. Grace Hanfield, dau. of William Stackpole Senr., was

Gurley. Rev. Increase N. Tarbox, D.D., Sept. 6 1872, read 
before the N. E. Hist, and Gen. Society a paper entitled " Remin- 
iscence of the Stackpole House." It was published -in the New 
Englander for Oct. 1873, ^o\. XXXII. He says without men- 
tioning names that John Ward Gurley was oldest son of Rev. 
John Gurley, D.D. of Eastern, Conn. He entered Yale College 
in 1794, neglected his studies, was dismissed from College at 
the request of his father, but so diligently pursued the study of 
law at Boston that Yale gave him the honorary degree of A.M. in 
1799, earlier than he could have obtained it, if he had finished his 
College course. "It happened one night in those years between 
1796 and 1799 a lire was raging somewhere in the vicinity of the 
Stackpole FTouse, and the fine looking student by a kind of acci- 
dent turned out of the crowd and took the steps of the old man- 
sion as a good place to see the fire. A pair of eyes happened 
to be looking out of the window, that had seen him before. The 
door was opened and the student was politely invited to walk in 
and look from a window, where he could see the fire to still better 
advantage. This was the real beginning of an acquaintance that 
ripened into marriage." He became an eminent lawyer, was

admitted to Suffolk bar in 1799, and had he lived would have risen

DESCENDANTS OF JOHN STACKPOLE OF 
DURHAM, ME. 

John Stackpole (James" Philip- James) son of James and 
Elizabeth (Pierce) Stackpole, was born in Somersworth, now 
Rollinsford, N. H., 4 Aug. 1749. He went to Harpswell, Me., 
when a young man and worked at his trade as a tailor. His 
brothers, James and William were then in Harspwell. He mar- 
ried 4 July 1775 Elizabeth, daughter of David and Mary Dun- 
ning,* of Brunswick, Me. She was born 9 Sept. 1751. They 

*Andrew Dunning was born in Ashburton, Devonshire, Eng. in 
1664. He married Susan Bond and came to Boston, Mass. in 1718, 
thence to Georgetov/n, Me., and to Brunswick the same year. He set- 
tled at "Maquoit." Was a farmer and blacksmith. His wife perished 
in the burning of their house. He d. 18 Jan. 1736. Five sons came with 
him, James, Andrew, Robert, William, and David. It is claimed that he 
left his oldest son, John, m Eng. whose son John became a celebrated 
lawyer, was elevated to the peerage with title of Lord Ashburton, and 
died leaving a property worth $50,000,000. He was b. 18 Oct. 1731 and 
d. 18 Aug. 1783. 

David Dunning b. 1706, settled in Brunswick, Me. and owned a large 
part of the land where the village now is. He built a block-house for 
defence against the Indians. He lived on the spot where the Town Hall 
now stands. Was Brunswick's first Representative to Mass. Gen. Court 
in 1742, and on the first board of Selectmen in 1739. He was Capt. of 
militia and one of the most active, enterprising and respected men of 
his time. Was Deacon in the Cong. Church. He died 16 Aug. 1793 
and is buried in the old Cemetery a mile south of the College. His 

first wife, Mary died 16 Aug. 1784, aged 74 yrs. He married (2) 

in 1788, Mrs. Mary (Lithgow) Hunter, when both were over eighty 
years of age. Six ch. by first marriage. See History of Durham, Maine, 
pp. 11-13. 



DESCENDANTS OF JOHN STACKPOLE OF DURHAM, ME. I 33 

lived at what is called "High Head" in Harpswell, not far from 
the Academy. He was for a brief time a Revolutionary soldier. 
See Military Record. 

The Cape Elizabeth Records show the marriage intentions of 
'■John Stagpole of Harpswell and Mrs. Mehitabel Emery of Cape 
Elizabeth 20 April 1773." The marriage was never consum- 
mated. She afterward married 22 Dec. 1785 Jeremiah Cushing. 

David Dunning was opposed to the marriage of his daughter 
to John Stackpole ; so they mounted horses and rode to her cou- 
sin's, Dea. Andrew Dunning of Harpswell, and were married 
in his house, still standing, by Rev. Samuel Eaton of Harpswell. 
They settled close by in a small house doubtless built by John 
Stackpole. The house is still standing, in a dilapidated condi- 
tion, removed a short distance from where it originally stood. It 
was about twenty feet square with an ell. A staircase led to an 
unfinished attic. The house stood close to the water, a little 
south of a large oak tree, northeast of Benjamin Dunning's 
house. 

May 6 1783 David Dunning gave a deed of seventy-five acres 
of land to his daughter, Elizabeth Stackpole. The land was in 
the northern part of Durham, Me., then called Royalsborough, 
lot 91. Oct. I, 1 79 1, John and Elizabeth Stacpole (sic) sold for 
fifteen pounds to Benjamin Dunning Jr. "land with a house 
thereon" in Harpswell, on Merriconeag River, at northeast cor- 
ner of land belonging to said Dunning, two and one quarter 
rods on the river front and sixty rods deep. At this time they 
moved to Durham. On a hilltop he built a framed house, facing 
the river Androscoggin, having four large square rooms below. 
This was burned in 1836. There was no road to his dwelling 
except a path made by cutting and spotting trees. In 1793 he 
and several others were warned by the Selectmen to leave town 
as intruders. He staid, however, having complied with the legal 
formalities, and in 1795 was road surveyor and one of the School 
Agents. He died 26 June 1829. 

Elizabeth (Dunning) Stackpole was a woman, as all accounts 
testify, of lovely Christian character, very gentle and ladylike in 
disposition and manners, traits which her daughters inherited. 
She died 29 Feb. 1836, leaving nine children, John Dunning, 
Hannah, David Dunning, Mary, Lydia, Jane Dunning, James 
Dunning, Samuel Owen, and Henry Ricker.

Aug. 1835 Mary Smith Merrill of Portland, Me. and died 16 Dec. 
1890 at Lexington, Mass. She was born 26 Jan. 181 1 in Port- 
land and died 18 Oct. 1861 in Gorham, Me. 

The following obituary of Charles A. Stackpole was written 
by Dr. Cyrus Hamlin and appeared under the heading "A True 
Man Fallen." "He was a man of splendid native powers and 
was fitted for College in Portland Academy with every prospect 
of distinction as a scholar. It is greatly to be regretted that cir- 
cumstances should have turned him aside from the very path he 
should have pursued. 

He put on the Christian armor in early life and was a faithful 
and sound Christian man, a constant student of the Bible, a 
profound believer in it as the Word of the living God. 

Very early, from 1834 and onward through his whole life, he 
became an earnest advocate of total abstinence, and also of the 
abolition of slavery. It was not by any means popular to be at 
the same time a "Temperance fanatic" and an "abolition fanatic." 
He was both pre-emmently, in the language of those days. His 
addresses were pungent, religious, direct, never long, always 
listened to with profound attention, and often with rapturous 
applause. In the "Free Soil Party" he was a leader but would 
not be a candidate for ofhce. He was uncompromisingly honest 
and just. His interest in moral and social questions often con- 
flicted with his business. He was successively merchant, cashier 
of a bank, editor of a newspaper, farmer, and so forth. He 
showed fine capacity in all his employments. He might have 
risen to eminence in every one of them. He lacked continuance. 
He would, moreover, sacrifice a fine prospect which he thought 
might conflict with conscience. His conscience ruled him. He 
obeyed her dictates without hesitation. Come what may, he 
would be at peace with himself. He never concealed his senti- 
ments. He never failed openly to avow and advocate them how- 
ever unpopular, if occasion occurred. And yet Mr. Stackpole 
was generally liked even by his opponents. His honesty, frank- 
ness, fairness disarmed antagonism to a great extent. 

He had fine social qualities. He had a remarkable memory. 
He was a close reader of history. He had a wide acquaintance 
with men. With regard to the men of influence and action, the 
professional and public men of Maine, and the social, religious 



142 STACKPOLE FAMILY 

and political changes of the last sixty years he was an encyclo- 
paedia of ready information. His many articles on the sons of 
Maine in the Saturday issues of the Boston Evening Traveller 

are specimens of his conversation O that the 

church were filled with members of such clear convictions and 
earnest lives." 

He had four children.

His wife died 8 March 1876, aged 53 years. 

The following Memorial Sketch was read before the N. E. 
Hist, and Gen. Society and printed in the Register, Vol. XXXHL 
1879, P- 362. 

"Mr. Stackpole came to Boston when a young man, and 
served his time with the house of Daniel Deshon and Co., where 
he won the esteem of the business community. In 1852 he 
became associated with Mr. Charles Larkin, under the style of 
Larkin and Stackpole. This business association, which con- 
tinued till Jan. 1, 1877, was terminated by the increasing infirmi- 
ties of Mr. Stackpole. The firm enjoyed the respect and confi- 
dence due to a house that maintained its credit by a long and 
honorable career. Mr. Stackpole was an upright and excellent 
merchant, seeking to advance his interests only by fair and 
worthy means. It was said of him, by one who had long held 
business relations with him, that "his word was sufficient, he 
carried out every verbal contract with as much consideration as if 



DESCENDANTS OF JOHN STACKPOLE OF DURHAM, ME. I43 

it were written and recorded." In social life Mr. Stackpole was 
esteemed for his many generous traits. He was a firm friend, 
and his friendship was not limited to mere expressions of confi- 
dence. His many kindly acts will be recalled by hundreds who 
enjoyed his acquaintance. He was a good citizen, exerting a 
wholesome influence in public affairs, without seeking or aiming 
at public notoriety. The loss of his wife a few years since 
deprived him of the counsel of a most worthy woman, and left to 
his guidance a son and two daughters. For many years Mr. 
Stackpole has been Consul for the Argentine Republic. His 
membership dates from April 11, 1870." 

The Boston Journal, Jan. 7, 1894, says of him, "His last Bos- 
ton home was in Chester Square. He was not a large man, but 
his figure was as well known in State St. as that of any contem- 
porary He was a very sound merchant, and made a 

careful study of all mercantile ventures. In war days his patriot- 
ism was unbounded. He gave of his time, of his energy and of 
his means most liberally, and woe betide the unhappy wight who 
displayed any "copperheadism" in his presence. Upon such a 
character he would empty the vials of a righteous wrath until the 
culprit was glad to lapse into sheltering silence. Through many 
a dark era Mr. Stackpole guided his firm's fortunes, and he always 
met every obligation at maturity. He enjoyed social life 
intensely, and extended unbounded hospitality to a very large 
circle of friends. When he passed away he left no one to fill his 
place. His character was shaped in a strong mould, and in one 
that was not to be duplicated."

of Samuel and Catherine (Clark) Robinson,* who was born at 
Durham, Me., 22 June 1794 and died 8 Feb. 1837. 

Samuel Owen Stackpole received the homestead from his 
father, giving bond of $1500, dated 7 March 1816, for the main- 
tenance during life of his parents and sister Jane, and for the 
payment of certain sums to other relatives. The bond obliges 
him to provide for his parents " Conveyance to Meeting and for 
visiting their friends in such manner as has been customary with 
them." This bond he gave when he was twenty-two years of 
age, and he faithfully fulfilled it. He added to the original 
homestead by purchase from time to time till he owned 180 acres. 
He engaged to some extent in lumbering, built a saw-mill just 
back of his house, which has long since disappeared, and drove 
many a mast and stick of oak timber to Freeport, Me. When 
he wanted bricks, he made them on his own farm. Had he used 
in a large city the same enterprise and industry that he displayed 
in farming, he would have become a very wealthy man. He was 
in military service a short time in the War of 1812. He refused 
all offers of public ofifice, though urged to accept several. The 
title of "Major" was familiarly applied to him, though he would 
not accept that ofifice when it was offered to him. His hospital- 
ity was unlimited. Everybody found a welcome at his home. 
His justice and generosity are illustrated in this, that when his 
uncle Aaron died childless and willed to him his farm worth 
$2000, he gave it to the woman who had cared for his uncle in 
his old age and infirmity. He united with the Methodist Episco- 
pal Church in 1838 and generously svipported it as long as he 
lived. Three miles were not too far to drive to meeting every 
Sunday in the year. No season of the year was too busy for 

*John Robinson, the emigrant ancestor, moved from Newbury, 
Mass., to Haverhill in 1640, thence to Exeter, N. H., about 1652, and was 
killed there by the Indians 21 Oct. 1675. He had sons, David, Jonathan, 
and Stephen. The last was a tax-payer at Exeter in 1662, moved to 
Dover, N. H., in 1666. He had a son John who worked at Fort William 
Henry, Goat Island, 1723-44. His son, John, Jr., m. 10 Dec. 1722 Sarah 
Jordan and moved to Cape Elizabeth, Me., the same year. Their son, 
Joshua m. 16 Nov. 1764 Sarah Miller, and had ten ch. of whom the old-

friends. In person he was six feet tall, straight as an arrow till 
bent by old age and sickness, rather slim than stout, but tough 
and muscular. He slept but little and wanted to be at work all 
the time. He lived seventy-six years on the spot where he was 
born, moved to Brunswick, Me., in 1872 and died there 7 April 
1876. He was buried about a mile from his Durham homestead, 
where rest also his father and mother, wives and several children.

DESCENDANTS OF CAPT. JAMES STACKPOLE 
OF WATERVILLE, ME. 

James Stackpole (John,^ John,- James) was born in Bidde- 
ford, Me. 14 Nov. 1732. He married 26 Dec. 1754 Abiel Hill 
of Biddeford, dau. of Ebenezer Jr. and Joanna Hill.* She was 
born 29 April 1737. They were married by Rev. Moses Morrill. 
It is related that some of his wife's relatives by name of Win- 
gate objected to her marrying "that Irish Jeemes." If they had 
known his Norman-Welsh lineage, they might not have ob- 
jected ! They afterward had no reason to be ashamed of him. 
He was tall and dignified in appearance and of deeply religious 
character. He united with the First Cong. Church of Bidde- 
ford 7 Oct. 1753, of which his wife was also a member. 

He owned a farm and saw-mill on Little River, Biddeford. 
He sold this property and moved to Gardiner, Me., in 1774. 
Here he kept what was called the " Great House," an inn built 
by the first settlers in 1761. 

*Peter Hill sailed from Plymouth, Eng., in the ship Huntress with 
John Winter and landed in America 22 Mch. 1632-3. He was a member 
of the Assembly of Lygonia in 1648. He died Aug. 1667. His only son, 
Roger Hill, m. Mary Cross of Wells, 1658. They had five sons and two 
daughters. One son, Ebenezer, settled in Biddeford and was long 
known as Deacon Hill. He and his wife Abigail were captured by the 
Indians and taken to Canada about 1705, where they remained three 
years. Their oldest son Ebenezer, Jr., was born in Canada, and after their 
return was familiarly called the "Frenchman." Deacon Hill died 1758. 
He names in his will seven children, Ebenezer, Jr.; Dorothy m. Jor- 
dan; Susanna m. Thos. Emery; Benjamin; Lydia m. Deacon Simon 
Wingate; Joshua; and Jeremiah m. Mary, dau. of Capt. Daniel Smith, 
in 1746. — See Folsom's Hist, of Biddeford, passim.

DESCENDANTS OF JOSEPH STACKPOLE 
OF AUGUSTA. 

Joseph Young Stackpole (John,'' John,- James) was born in 
Biddeford, Maine, 28 Aug. 1747; m. 12 May 1773 Anna, oldest 
child of Brian and Anna (Young) Fletcher. She was born 25 
Jan. 1750; bap. in Biddeford 8 Aug. 1750; d. in Augusta 2 Jan. 
T836. He died in Augusta, Maine, 26 Feb. 1823. 

He was in early life a sailor. He seems to have been with 
his brother James in Gardiner, Me., in 1775, for 25 July of that 
year he enlisted as a private from "Gardner's Town" in Capt. 
Oliver Colburn's Co., Col. Arnold's Regt. He served twenty 
days in a company of Militia Men, being discharged 14 Aug. 
1775. Later in life he was offered a pension, if he would take 
a poor man's oath, but this he could not do. He moved to 
Augusta about 1784, since he was taxed that year for fifty acres 
of land, two oxen and a cow. He lived on the east side of the 
Kennebec, about three miles from the Augusta bridge, on a farm 
now (1899) owned by William Hunt. Although he was the 
shortest of four brothers, tradition says that he measured six feet 
and four inches in height, the tallest, John, being six feet seven 
inches. He had black hair, large black eyes and prominent 
Roman nose. He was very muscular and a story is told of his 
holding out a neighbor at arm's length clear of the floor and 
whipping him with an ox-goad for wife-beating. His neighbors 
used to call him "Mightypole." He was a polite man, strict in

family government, and a constant attendant at church, whither 
he used to ride three miles on horseback with his wife* on the 
pillion. 

Joseph Y. and Anna (Fletcher) Stackpole had, besides three 
who died in infancy, eight children, Joseph, Nahum, Elias, Rob- 
ert, Brian, Ann, Sarah and Hannah. 

I. Joseph Jr. b. 2 Sept. 1777; m. 20 March 1803 Vesta Pet-

*His wife was small, of very light complexion, with blue eyes and 
black hair. She was descended from William Fletcher, who was buried 
in Biddeford, 1668. His son, Rev. Seth Fletcher, was minister at Wells, 
Me., in 1655. He afterward preached in Saco, leaving there in 1675. 
Folsom's Hist, of Biddeford says that he married before 1655 Mary, 
only dau. of Major Brian Pendleton. An old Hist, of Arundel thinks 
it was another Seth Fletcher who married the dau. of Pendleton. This 
Pendleton was born 1578, was in Watertown, Mass., in 1634, moved to 
Portsmouth, N. H., in 1650, went to Saco in 1665, returned to Ports- 
mouth in 1676 and died in 1680. His only son James moved to Conn. 

The son of Seth and Mary Fletcher was adopted by Brian Pendleton 
and received an inheritance in his Will, viz., land at Winter Harbor, 
Biddeford. He lived on what was called first Pendleton's Neck, after- 
wards Fletcher's Neck. He m. Sarah, dau. of Roger Hill. Was cap- 
tured by the Indians and died in Canada, about 1698. His son. Pendle- 
ton Fletcher, was captured at the same time. He returned and was a 
prominent citizen of Biddeford; moved to Arundel (Kennebunkport) 
and was made a proprietor of that town. He conveyed, in 1746, his 
property to his sons, John, Joseph, Brian, Pendleton, Seth and Samuel. 
John and Joseph settled in Arundel. Pendleton died on the Neck 17 
April 1807, aged 100 years. Brian m. 4 April 1749 Anna Young of Bid- 
deford and moved to Augusta in 1780. He had children Anna, Robert, 
David, etc.

UNCLASSIFIED STACKPOLES. 

JoTHAM Stackpole is Said to have been rescued from 
shipwreck and landed at Biddeford, Me. He was hving at the 
mouth of the Saco River in 1801. His intentions of marriage 
with Phoebe Curtis were recorded 24 June 1804. Their only 
child, JoTHAM, was born 6 March 1805 and was brought up by 
his grandfather Curtis. Jotham Stackpole Sen. was lost at sea 
shortly after his marriage. The intentions of marriage of his 
widow with Samuel H. Smith were recorded in Biddeford 7 Jan. 
1809. 

Since the above was in print I have seen a Diary kept by the 
James Stackpole of Waterville, Maine, who married Abiel Hill of 
Biddeford. Under date of Aug. 11, 1796, he writes, "I heard of 
the death of my brother John and one of his sons." This 
brother was the John Stackpole 3d of Biddeford, Maine, men- 
tioned on page 68 of this book. It was he, perhaps, who was 
Collector of Biddeford in 1794. The "one of his sons" who 
died about the same time was probably the Abner of page 68, 
since no account of him can be found. There was, according to 
the Diary cited, another son at least, and all evidences point to 
the above mentioned Jotham Stackpole as that son. 

Jotham Stackpole, Jr., married Elizabeth Emmons, sister to 
the wife of Andrew Stackpole of Biddeford, and died in May, 
1861. They had nine children.

XXVI. 

THE FIRST REUNION 



In response to invitation sent by printed circular to as many 
of the Stackpole family as could be reached about seventy-five 
persons assembled, August 24, 1898, on the original Stackpole 
farm in Rollinsford, N. H. The house, now owned by the heirs 
of the late Samuel Hale, was thrown open, and a caterer had pre- 
pared a bounteous lunch under the shade of trees on the lawn. 
The day was extremely warm, yet everybody was in good humor. 
The site of the house first built by James Stackpole, the emi- 
grant, was visited, and then the burial-ground on the hill-top 
overgrown by trees and bushes. There was a committee of the 
whole on introductions. If any person did not get somewhat 
acquainted with all the rest, it was his own fault. Rev. Everett 
S. Stackpole, who had assumed the responsibility of issuing the 
invitations, gave some account of his visit to the cradle of the 
family in Pembrokeshire, Wales, and briefly rehearsed its migra- 
tions, illustrating his informal talk by many photographs. 

After lunch the company gathered about the "old oaken 
bucket that hung in the well" and with Rev. Charles Henry 
Stackpole of Dorchester, Mass., for toastmaster, listened to 
impromptu speeches by Dr. Paul A. Stackpole of Dover, N. H., 
Judge George F. Stackpole of Riverhead, N. Y., and others. 

A Stackpole Association was formed with the following 
officers : Judge George F. Stackpole, President ; Mrs. Annie 
W. Baer of Rollinsford, N. H., \^ice President : Rev. Everett S. 
Stackpole, Secretary; Mr. Charles S. Stackpole of Lawrence, 
Mass., Rev. Charles Henry Stackpole of Dorchester, Mass., and 
Mr. Martin P. Bennett of Dover, N. H., Executive Committee.
